ARTMS Products Inc. and GE Healthcare Team up to Expand Cyclotron Produced Radioisotopes and Address Longstanding Radiopharmaceutical Supply Concerns in Medical Imaging

Today, ARTMS Products, Inc. announced they have signed a strategic partnership with GE Healthcare around ARTMS’ proprietary QUANTM99TM Irradiation System (QISTM) for radioisotope production. The goal of the partnership is to supply equipment, technologies and research that supports the production […]

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 […]
