Medical Isotope Production - Y-90 Commercialization

We are restructuring our capabilities to support scientific advances in isotopes for medicine to include:

  • Alpha-emitter radiochemistry - Separations, automated systems, chelates, applications.
  • Yttrium-90 composites - Gels and fibrin performance testing.
  • Production from generator sources - Pb-212/Bi-212, Yttrium-90 for select clients, Ra-223 from Ac-227.
  • Medical isotope dosimetry and animal studies - Clinical trials support.
  • Reactor target processing - University research reactors.
