Romania's Largest R&D Institute Purchases Cyclotron from Canadian Cyclotron Manufacturer
ACSI TR19 cyclotron to further Europe's research in nuclear medical radioisotopes
Vancouver, BC Canada – (October 4, 2010) – Advanced Cyclotron Systems Inc. (ACSI) a leading provider of cyclotron solutions, announced that it has sold a TR19 variable energy (14 - 19 MeV) cyclotron to Horia Hulubei National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH), Magurele-Ilfov, Romania.
"This purchase reinforces our position as the leader in cyclotron technology." said Richard Eppich, CEO & President, ACSI. "The TR19 is a very flexible cyclotron because of the variable energy beam extraction. We are very excited to partner with the IFIN-HH and their nuclear research program."
ACSI’s TR19 cyclotrons are the highest performing radioisotope production cyclotrons in the field boasting >300 microamps of extracted beam current. The 14 to 19 MeV variable energy cyclotrons are used for the production of PET (Positron Emission Tomography) radioisotopes including F-18, N-13, O-15, and C-11 as well as research isotopes.
About Advanced Cyclotron Systems Inc. (ACSI)
Advanced Cyclotron Systems Inc. is the leading manufacturer of high output cyclotrons for the international nuclear medicine community. ACSI continues to build on its industry dominant position, having supplied and installed all of the SPECT cyclotrons sold in North America in the past 15 years.
