Research on Solution to Medical Isotope Crisis Acccelerates: Advanced Cyclotron Systems Works with Two Canadian Research Organizations to Test New Sources for Tc-99m production

(RICHMOND, B.C.) – A private company is working in partnership with two of Canada’s leading nuclear medicine research centres to develop a solution to the medical isotope crisis for wide spread use.

Advanced Cyclotron Systems Inc. (ACSI) a leading manufacturer of cyclotrons for the production of medical radioisotopes announced today that it has sold two TR-24 cyclotrons to the University of Alberta’s Department of Oncology in Edmonton and the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke (CHUS) in Quebec.

A Complementary Solution for Production of Medical Isotopes – Researchers from Sherbrooke succeed in producing technetium 99m with a cyclotron

Researchers at the CHUS’s Centre de recherche clinique Étienne-Le Bel (CRCELB) and the Université de Sherbrooke, in collaboration with Advanced Cyclotron Systems Inc. in Richmond, have just demonstrated that technetium 99m can be produced using a cyclotron. Diagnostic testing indicates that cyclotron-produced technetium 99m is fully equivalent to that obtained from nuclear reactor, such as the Chalk River facility.
