Food irradiation is used to treat food in order to make it safer to eat and have a longer shelf life. This process is not very different from other treatments such as pesticide application, canning, freezing and drying.

Furthermore, around one-third of all procedures used in modern hospitals involve nuclear medicine, specifically radiation or radioactivity used to diagnose, treat and prevent disease.

Clearly, all of these disclipines process substances which require containment equipment given the inherent danagers and hazards of nuclear technology. Schematic Industries are therefore a natural supply partner for such.
