RPS Service specialise in the sales and service of biological irradiators for the blood service and research markets.
With more than 30 years experience of gamma irradiator systems, we service all manufactured models, and we can dose-map™ all models. With the change to alternative technologies we are proud to represent the Precision X-Ray range of x-ray irradiators as well as their SmART IGRT system.
As well as working with irradiators we also market and service the Faxitron non medical imaging systems used in a range of NDT, research and Quality control applications.
To compliment our imaging systems we market the KliniTray™ from Klinika, a surgical specimen grid that is used to determine tumor sites with millimeter precision. KliniTray was designed to enable surgeons and pathologists to easily locate and pinpoint the exact location of micro-calcifications.
Our head office is in Surrey, UK and we have recently opened a sister company in Germany where we have a service facilities to look after our mainland European customers.
