In the last decades, thanks to the development of several irradiation facilities for medical applications, many radiobiology experiments are carried out in nuclear physics laboratories world wide. At Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS) in Catania, several experiments performed by different groups are aimed at the study of the effects of ion beams on biological samples. In the framework of the experiment IENBIO, for the study of ion beam application in the enhancement of biodiversity, a multipurpose experimental apparatus has been set-up in order to automatically perform irradiation on a lot of samples at once. The experimental set-up, entirely designed and realized at LNS, will be presented.
