Particle Delivery System

The PDS (Particle Delivery System) is a modular hardware and software product. It affixes to the end of nearly any accelerator, transforming it into a modern particle therapy system. Our PDS components have operated in treatment rooms daily for well over a decade. The PDS is the premium choice with unparalleled performance and capabilities.

  • Fast - 250μs slew with 10,000Hz data
  • Complete - Detectors, dosimetry, magnets, controls, and QA
  • FLASH - 1,000nA+ ionization chambers and electrometers
  • Proven - 20 years and over 80 rooms and counting
  • Brandable - Seamlessly integrates into your brand for a cohesive end product
