ARTMS invited presentations in September

Vancouver, September 24, 2018 /BusinessWire/ — ARTMS Products, Inc. announced today that it has been invited to present at the National Nuclear Security Administration’s 2018 Mo-99 Topical Meeting on Tuesday, September 25th and the Third International Symposium on Technetium and other Radiometals in Chemistry and Medicine on Thursday, September 27th.

Lead manufacturing engineer, Mr. Joel Kumlin, will present at the 2018 Mo-99 Topical Meeting in Knoxville, TN, during Session 7, Production Projects and Technologies II, at 13:00EDT on September 25th.

Mr. Kumlin will be discussing progress on implementation of the ARTMS QUANTM Irradiation SystemTM for producing technetium-99m. The QISTM combines local production control and a cost-effective, easy-to-use solid target system for the production of Tc-99m on most cyclotron systems. ARTMS recently announced that the QISTM received CE mark approval and has been installed in a number of countries throughout the world.

ARTMS also announced that Dr. Paul Schaffer, CTO, has been invited to present at the Third International Symposium on Technetium and other Radiometals in Chemistry and Medicine in Bressanone, Italy during Scientific Session C at 15:35CEST on September 27th.

Dr. Schaffer will be discussing advances in QISTM for producing high-value radioisotopes, such as Tc-99m, Ga-68, Zr-89 and Cu-64.

About 2018 Mo-99 Topical Meeting

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) NNSA manages the 2018 Mo-99 Topical Meeting, taking place in Knoxville, Tennessee from September 23-26, 2018. The meeting allows policy and technical experts to present progress on the production of Mo-99 (Tc-99m) without the use of HEU in support of non-proliferation objectives and global supply reliability.

About TERACHEM 2018

The Third International Symposium on Technetium and other Radiometals in Chemistry and Medicine (TERACHEM) will feature invited lectures and presentations on the development of medically relevant radiometals and their application in chemistry, radiopharmacy and nuclear medicine.
