Alternative to Discontinued Konica Minolta SRX-101A X-Ray Film Processor

There is no doubt that the Konica Minolta SRX-101A was one of the finest tabletop x-ray film processors ever designed and manufactured. It certainly wasn't inexpensive, but I would venture to say that it was not a bad product for the price. It was a reliable, versatile (multi-speed) unit. I can't really say anything bad about the processor, except maybe that when repair parts were needed, some tended to be expensive.

When it was announced in July of 2014 that Konica Minolta was ceasing production of the SRX-101A, we were able to offer alternatives. There are still dedicated x-ray film users that are just not ready, willing or able to make the jump to digital at this time, but they may need a new processor. Or they may not want to have to sell a kidney to get the money required to make a huge investment in SRX-101A repair parts when they could purchase a new processor for a similar price. So what are the options?

We at FI Sales like to think that we offer an excellent option in the Protec ECOMAX tabletop x-ray film processor.

The ECOMAX is about half of what a Konica Minolta SRX-101A used to cost, so it is an inexpensive investment to make while waiting to make the move to digital imaging.

The ECOMAX is a high-quality, German-made product that does not sacrifice quality to get a low price. Clever design engineering that makes the ECOMAX the simplest fully-automatic x-ray film processor in the world also makes it so inexpensive.  We have sold thousands in over 10 years, and we can attest through minimal replacement parts sales that the Protec ECOMAX is made to last. Each Protec ECOMAX ships with a 1 year parts warranty.

The ECOMAX certainly does not have all the features that the SRX-101A had.  For example, the ECOMAX is a single speed unit, while the SRX-101A is a 3-speed unit.  But unless you want a processor that can be used for general radiography, mammography, etc., then multiple speeds on a processor is just an expensive option that drives up the price.  Click the link to see all the features that the ECOMAX does offer.

If for any reason the ECOMAX cannot meet your imaging needs, perhaps the Protec OPTIMAX can. It has more features and is correspondingly more expensive.  More details on all our processors can be found on our processor webpage.

So if you are without a good alternative for the Konica Minolta SRX-101A, we hope you consider our line of Protec processors, especially the ECOMAX.  Use the highlighted links to connect with us online, email us at, or call us toll-free at 1-888-XRAY-777 (1-888-972-9777).

Fischer, Protec and Level 356 Parts Stores

Believe it or not, there are still many x-ray film processors in operation in the USA and around the world. Unfortunately, there are fewer x-ray service companies around to maintain and service the x-ray film processors.  Processor owners are often challenged to maintain and service their own processors.  FI Sales acknowledges this, and now makes it easier than ever to purchase parts to keep Fischer Industries, Protec and Level 356 processors operating properly.

Fischer Industries closed at the end of 2007.  They were known for making processors that last 20+ years.  Well, FI Sales still has parts available for 30+ year old Fischer processors, as well as more recent models.  Visit our Fischer Parts Store. Here you can add Fischer parts to a Secure Shopping Cart for direct purchase from FI Sales.

Protec Medical of Germany is known for making x-ray film processors like the ECOMAX and OPTIMAX that almost never need a part replaced.  There's just something about that German engineering.  However, there are always exceptions to the rule, so FI Sales stocks parts to support the Protec processors we sell. Visit our Processor Parts webpage for more info and a price list for Protec parts.

The Level 356 dental x-ray film processor is the only processor from the Fischer Industries days that still is available from FI Sales.  It is a great little self-contained unit that requires no darkroom.  If the processor is still available, of course parts are, too. Purchase popular Level 356 from our online Parts Store.

If you need our assistance in ordering a part, call 1-888-972-9777 or email to

New XS X-Ray Table is Basic & Economical

Protec's line of Prognost x-ray tables clearly set the standard for mobile, elevating x-ray tables.

Designed and made with quality by Protec Medical of Germany, there simply is no better line of mobile, elevating x-ray tables available on the market today.  You can use these links to visit our Mobile X-Ray Table webpage and access product literature.  But make no mistake, at this level of quality, there is a higher price to pay with models running up to and over $20,000 with options.

The XS still comes with Protec design and manufacturing quality, but at a much more economical price, under $3000.  This is a no-frills x-ray table, with a radiolucent and artifact-free fixed position tabletop that can hold up to 400 lbs.  Roll the table into position with a U-arm x-ray for digital or film-based radiography.  Click for XS product literature.

Protec, Provotec, Prognost, Akku ... Oh my!

With the introduction into North America of the PROGNOST mobile, elevating x-ray tables from Protec in Germany, there are some questions about what some of the names mean that are associated with these tables.  This is a good forum to explain ...

Provotec is listed on some of the documents concerning these tables.  Provotec of Germany was the original manufacturer of these x-ray tables.  Provotec was acquired by Protec Medical of Germany in 2010.  The similarity between the names Provotec and Protec is merely a coincidence as they were previously 2 separate companies, but now 1.

Protec Medical of Germany is the largest privately-held manufacturer of x-ray film processors in the world today. With the acquisition of Provotec in 2010, Protec was able to expand its product offering to include x-ray tables, x-ray systems, C-arms, and DR buckys.  All Provotec manufacturing has now been successfully transferred and assimilated into Protec's manufacturing center in Oberstenfeld, Germany.

PROGNOST is the brand name coined by Provotec for the line of mobile, elevating x-ray tables that Protec now manufactures.  There is a loyal following for the PROGNOST brand, so no name change is planned.  One can speculate that the name PROGNOST was coined as a shortened version of the word "prognostic," meaning predictive of something in the future.  That is certainly one of the results of x-ray, helping to deliver a prognosis for the future.

The highest end PROGNOST mobile, elevating table is the model XPE-Akku.  What does the "-Akku" mean?  Akku in German means battery, and the XPE-Akku is the battery-powered version.  Makes sense!

Hopefully, this explains the origin and meaning of some of the names associated with this premier line of mobile, elevating x-ray tables. For more information, visit our Mobile X-Ray Table webpage, call 1-888-972-9777, or email us at
