FEERIX irradiation test platform
Unique to the world, the FEERIX* irradiation test platform is a tool designed for R&D and training purposes. The project revolves around a Rhodotron, built by the Belgian company IBA. The platform draws on state-of-the-art technologies, comprising an electron accelerator and high-energy X-ray generation. FEERIX can also be used to study ionisation applications across multiple sectors, such as the sterilisation of medical instruments and devices, altering the physico-chemical properties of polymers, grafting, etc.
A particular strength of FEERIX is that it is configured in a very similar way to industrial equipment. This is why the results obtained in a laboratory can be transferred to an industrial setting with no change in scale.
These applications fall within the scope of the future medical technologies NextMed Campus (2019). FEERIX will also, therefore, be available to research laboratories across the region.
