BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY

In 2007 & 2009 the world experienced shortages due to reactor outages, highlighting the vulnerability of the current supply chain. The shortages caused in significant price increases, delayed and canceled medical procedures and resulted in a decrease in patient care. In response, ARTMS Products Inc. developed an award-winning, first-to-market, locally deployable method for producing Tc-99m using existing, hospital-based medical cyclotrons. ARTMS holds the exclusive global commercialization rights to the award-winning and proprietary Canadian technology that addresses these challenges and offers the prospect of revolutionizing the nuclear medicine industry.

IN THE NEWS

Researchers at the BC Cancer Agency in Vancouver and TRIUMF, the Canadian national particle and nuclear physics lab, have successfully produced vital supplies of Technetium-99m, a medical imaging isotope, using a retrofitted cyclotron, a type of particle accelerator already in […]

A Canadian-led team says that it has succeeded in proving the feasibility of using particle accelerators instead of nuclear reactors to produce a badly needed medical isotope. If health regulators approve the method, it will place supplies of the crucial […]

The first commercial shipment of medical isotopes produced using a new particle-accelerator-based technique has been made by scientists at the Canadian Light Source (CLS). Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) decays to create technetium-99m (Tc-99m), which is used to tag radiopharmaceuticals and plays a […]
