What We Do
Xstrahl is a medical technology company who designs radiation delivery devices to support clinical teams and researchers worldwide. These are used to investigate and treat chronic conditions with radiation, including cancer. For more than 25 years, Xstrahl has been shaping the development of superficial and orthovoltage radiation therapy and advancing preclinical radiation research. Xstrahl systems are in operation across the globe at more than 700 treatment and research facilities worldwide.
Xstrahl knows radiation. Our ability to deliver advanced clinical systems means we have significant expertise in developing high-quality research systems. We use the same rigorous R&D process we use for a clinical setting. We do this all for one goal – to expand the use of radiation therapy to treat chronic disease with improved patient care and outcomes. Inspiring science, advancing care.
Whether we are helping to deliver radiation at a patient’s bedside at home, in a hospital, at a mobile clinic, or in a research lab, we do it with a reputation of excellence in customer support, innovation, and reliability.
We are passionate about making a meaningful contribution to help one another, our customers, and the patients we serve.
We always consider the ultimate problem. We look to the end of the path, identify solutions, and then present a recommended route.
Start, Go, Finish
We are prepared and ready. We are eager to support clinicians and researchers to help patients in the best way possible. We get it done.
We commit tirelessly toward a goal, chipping away at big projects and never losing sight of the finish line. It is a long road, and we win one patient at a time.
HOW WE DO IT
Advancing Care with X-ray Radiation
Xstrahl uses superficial and orthovoltage systems to deliver advanced low-energy treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) and other benign skin conditions such as keloid scarring, Dupuytren’s disease, and Ledderhose, providing maximum comfort to the patient without surgical intervention.
HOW WE DO IT
Office-Based Therapy for Dermatology
Our newest treatment system, RADiant, extends care to office-based clinical settings. RADiant is a dual-modality surface radiation therapy system which provides both superficial radiation treatment and electronic brachytherapy. This provides maximum flexibility for treating NMSC and other skin conditions in a dermatology office.
HOW WE DO IT
Inspiring Science & Research
The Small Animal Radiation Research Platform (SARRP) is the most advanced 3D-image guided micro irradiator that’s commercially available and serves as Xstrahl’s flagship research system. SARRP is a dynamic radiation research tool that minimizes normal tissue toxicity through precise target validation.
We also provide a wide range of X-ray cabinet irradiators that enable safe and accurate irradiation of both in vitro and in vivo biological samples.
Every client is our neighbor. We will do everything we can to assist caregivers, patients, and researchers to the best of our abilities and resources. We will move mountains to help.
Xstrahl provides an unsurpassed level of service from initial specification through to installation and ongoing training, education, and maintenance for both our clinical and research systems.
Our team’s in-depth understanding of the clinical environment and research setting ensures an unrivaled level of support to all of our clients, even to researchers who have little to no clinical training. Learn more about our leadership team and see some of our employee spotlights.

Learn About Radiation Therapy
The first reported “cure” of cancer was documented in literature in 1899 when a basal cell epithelioma (now referred to as a basal cell carcinoma or BCC) was treated by the application of radiation via a radium source to the skin.
