Stellarray, Inc. announced it has received a contract award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to complete development of its Modular & Addressable Research Irradiators (MARI) and thereby help eliminate the need for dangerous radioactive isotopes. The 24-month contract is for Phase III of the small business innovation research and development project the company began for NNSA in 2015 to develop these irradiators. The objective of Phase III is to finish testing the x-ray sources, deploy beta test units to university …

Stellarray, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a Phase I SBIR research grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the development of a highly novel x-ray microscope. An objective of Phase I is to develop a very high brightness source of x-rays from apertures under 100 nanometers, to enable cell and other imaging studies in a bench-top microscopy system. The x-ray generator will use aspects of Stellarray’s patented “forward flux channel” x-ray source, combined with x-ray …

Stellarray is seeking an innovative engineer for the development of new types of X-ray sources, the integration of high voltage power supplies, and the incorporation of these modules into radiation system products. This engineer will work with a small team of specialists in radiation source engineering, advanced cathode fabrication and test, module assembly and imaging systems. The current focus of our work is the first product we will release – a small irradiator for assuring the safety of blood transfusions, which uses our plain flat panel X-ray sources. …

Stellarray, Inc. announced today that it has begun work on a Phase I SBIR contract with the National Cancer Institute of the U.S. National Institutes of Health for the development of High Intensity Digital X-ray Sources (HI-DAXS) for cancer imaging. This project will focus on high intensity cold cathode arrays and innovative architectures for digitally addressable x-ray sources that can be used in stationary computed tomography (CT) systems. Stationary CT is an emerging radiographic imaging system which eliminates the rotating x-ray tube on a mechanical gantry and …

San Diego, CA
Stellarray, Inc. announced today that it will exhibit an improved prototype of its Self-Contained Blood Irradiator (SCBI) at the American Association of Blood Banks show at the San Diego Convention Center, October 22-25. Stellarray will be at Booth 744 and invites interested parties from blood banks, hospitals and other transfusion centers to stop by. SCBI has not yet received FDA clearance and is not yet available for sale. The device is intended to treat transfusion blood supplies to treat a fatal condition known as graft-versus-host …

Austin, TX
Stellarray, Inc. has received a grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health to commercialize a blood irradiator using the company’s proprietary flat panel X-ray sources. Blood is routinely irradiated at hospitals and blood banks to prevent transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease, a usually fatal condition in which active T-leukocytes attack recipient organs, particularly in immuno-suppressed cases such as cancer patients. Irradiation is indicated in 10% of all blood/blood component transfusions in the U.S., meaning about 2.3 Mn blood units …

Austin, TX
Stellarray, Inc. announced today that it has received a Phase I SBIR award from the National Science Foundation to develop a new class of radiation sources for the safe, efficient and economical  treatment of difficult contaminants in municipal wastewater systems.   These “large area radiation sources” (LARS) are being made in X-ray versions for the treatment of solid streams and UV-C versions for the treatment of fluid streams.  Large flat panel and long, closed pipe sources are being developed for both spectra.  All versions are based on proprietary cathode array …
