The WBK-01 X-ray system produces high-energy X-rays that illuminate cells or small animals. Used in a variety of basic research and applied research. Historically, radioisotope irradiators have been used, which requires transporting samples to a core irradiation facility. Today, smaller, safer, simpler and lower cost X-ray irradiation equipment can be installed in the laboratory for convenient and rapid irradiation of cells, and various samples can be directly irradiated in the laboratory without affecting fertility. Or safe, the system is easy to use for people who are not trained in professional X-rays, and there are no expensive license applications and safety or radiation source maintenance costs.
The device is simple, safe, reliable, and less expensive, and can replace the source of radioisotopes.
Mating male sterile mosquitoes with wild female mosquitoes can prevent mosquito eggs from hatching or larvae from developing, and can control mosquito populations.
Recent decades of scientific research have shown that controlling mosquito populations is the most effective way to combat mosquito-borne diseases. Although pesticides play a role in controlling the population of mosquitoes, their potential threat to ecosystems and human health, as well as the increasing resistance of mosquitoes to insecticides, have driven scientists to develop more environmentally friendly methods. Insecticides are the most important insecticide replacement technology for mosquitoes.
Insect sterility technology was developed in the 1950s by two American entomologists Raymond Bushlander and Edward Keniplin. Radioactive irradiation was used to treat pest larvae, and sterile males were selected. Insects then release a large number of treated male insects, which will mate with wild female insects, making them unable to produce offspring normally, thus achieving the purpose of controlling the population of pests.
The technology was first used to eliminate the fly larvae of the genus Spinosaurus, which is parasitic on the surface of livestock. This fly can invade livestock wounds, causing livestock to die, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to the US livestock industry each year. On the island of Sanibel in Florida, researchers released radiation-induced male flies and successfully destroyed the greenhead flies on the island. Another field release test was conducted at 460 square kilometers of the Dutch Curaçao Island. On the way, only 7 weeks, the fly purification was achieved. Later, the technology was widely used in the United States, Mexico, Central America, Libya and other countries and regions, successfully removing the green fly. This technology has also been successful in the control of pests such as Mediterranean fruit fly and African tsetse fly.
