Vita-Rays are a part of the Super-Soldier Serum that speeds up the potion's effects and makes them work correctly. They were created by Abraham Erskine. The only Vita-Ray Chamber was destroyed.[1]

Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999)

Vita-Rays were created and used by Abraham Erskine as part of Project Rebirth along with the Super Soldier Serum.

During his transformation into the first super soldier, Steve Rogers screamed in pain as his body absorbed a vita radiation level of 70%. Peggy Carter and Erskine wanted to stop the project; however, Rogers begged them not to cease, saying that he could take it. Howard Stark proceeded to increase the output to 100%, causing the chamber to glow so brightly that Chester Phillips and other observers covered their eyes.[2]

Nitramene, a chemical created by Howard Stark, which is used to implode even entire buildings[3], emits Vita Radiation and it can be detected by a Vita-Ray Detector.[4]
