AT FAXITRON®, WE DEVELOP SOLUTIONS TO HELP YOU SEE THE WORLD WITH MORE CLARITY.
To enable you to bring precision to the point of care. To allow you to focus on what matters the most—the patients you see, the discoveries you make, the truths you uncover and the lives you touch. Wherever you are, and wherever you are going, Faxitron can help you achieve your vision.
A worldwide leader in digital radiography, Faxitron® has been pioneering solutions for medical imaging applications in women’s health and life science research for over 50 years.
Our origins stem from the physics pioneer Joseph Edmonds Henderson, who invented the original Faxitron cabinet x-ray system in the late 1960’s. Hewlett-Packard bought the business in 1974, recognizing the innovative potential in the Faxitron product line and adopting its process for use in manufacturing miniaturized silicon chips.
The 1990’s were hallmark years for the Faxitron brand as it became privately purchased and then incorporated into a company focused on the initial line of Faxitron cabinet x-ray systems. A series of acquisitions soon followed in the next decade into the millennium, which allowed the company to further expand and penetrate NDT, medical breast biopsy, and small animal imaging markets.
A strong partnership with Bioptics in the 2000’s resulted in the development of the ﬁrst digital specimen radiography system, the MX-20 Digital. Both companies made rapid innovations in the market and grew the specimen radiography industry. A merger was announced in July of 2011, bringing together the spirit of innovation and focus on quality that has deﬁned the Faxitron brand from the beginning. The integrated Faxitron name and brand was launched in 2012.
Today, Faxitron debuts a new, refreshed brand and has adopted “Achieve your vision” as a tagline. With this new identity, we hope to convey our dedication to advancing solutions for breast cancer care and life science research. Our goal is to help healthcare teams, researchers, and patients achieve their vision for their work and their lives.
Faxitron Vision. The ability to see beyond what is there today, and anticipate what is to come. At Faxitron, our vision has been focused on contributing to the evolution of medicine and life science research since our inception in 1967. As the pioneer in cabinet x-ray imaging technology and the global leader in specimen radiography and irradiation, Faxitron has continued to develop innovative products and solutions that enable physicians and researchers to achieve more for their patients and for the world at large.
By collaborating with clinical and scientiﬁc experts from all over the world, we pledge our commitment to precision, efficiency and outcomes. We dedicate ourselves each day to helping our customers ﬁght the war against breast cancer and uncover new truths through life science research initiatives.
At Faxitron, we understand that change requires vision. We take pride in delivering products that enable visions to be realized, lives to be saved and a better tomorrow to be achieved.
