Isotopes Research and Production Department
Created on May 17, 2010.

    Main objectives and activities:

  1. studying the properties of medical isotopes and their application needs;
  2. studying the methods of production of medical isotopes, in particular accelerator methods;
  3. development of the methodologies for the obtaining of medical isotopes in the beams of electron accelerators;
  4. development of the methods of extracting the medical isotopes from irradiated material;
  5. development of the methods of controlling parameters of the obtained isotopes;
  6. Development of the methodologies for the obtaining of medical isotopes in the proton beams of the C18 cyclotron;
  7. transferring of the methods of obtaining, extracting, and controlling parameters of medical isotopes onto the cyclotron option;
  8. pilot production of medical isotopes in the beam of C18, improvement of methods and technologies for:
    • making and processing of targets before irradiation;
    • evacuation and relocation of targets;
    • chemical treatment of targets before extraction of the final product from the irradiated material;
    • product quality control;
    • restoration of metallic Molybdenum.
  9. development of the methods of medical instrumentation, including the usage of high-tech CCD matrices;
  10. the use of radiation technologies for sterilization of medical instruments and modification of materials;
  11. the use of cryogenic technologies in the production and extraction of isotopes.
