EnXray's Low Energy X-ray technology is based on the original research & development of its co-founders. Initially it was developed for laser applications where there was a need for a reliable and inexpensive technology to produce large area, homogeneous X-rays for pre-ionisation of laser media. Whilst this problem was successfully solved, it was also realised that the application of the technology was not limited to a niche market of high-power lasers. This led to the development of cost-effective environmentally friendly and safe systems for Distributed Sterilisation-on-Demand (also referred to as DoD – Disinfection-on-Demand).
Examples of products that are currently sterilised using ionising radiation such as Gamma rays include: Medical implants, artificial joints, syringes, minimally invasive surgical devices, blood bags, surgical gloves, gowns, masks, sticking plasters, wound dressings, bottle teats for premature babies, raw materials for pharmaceuticals, as well as ‘tetrapacks’, food packaging, cosmetics and even wine corks.
