based manufacturer, has begun building and selling cyclotrons
, including imaging centres in Edmonton and Sherbrooke, Que.
As NSCL senior physicist, Reginald Ronningen explains, "The vaults enclosing the cyclotron
and experimental areas exclude personnel and greatly reduce the level of radiation outside the vaults.
The 28 MeV (B28) is an H(-) cyclotron
that has extraction energies of 28 and 20 MeV.
The 70 MeV Cyclotron
is expected to be operational in the fall of 2016 and will help to stabilize the domestic supply of medical isotopes needed to diagnose and treat critical illnesses.
The high current features of the cyclotrons
(400-1000 micro-amperes) together with the low radioactivation of the cyclotron
systems allow a broad range of commercial radioisotope production processes even on the B14p cyclotron
June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardinal Health today opened its first cyclotron
facility in the state of Georgia, further expanding its nationwide capability to manufacture molecular imaging biomarkers that aid in the early diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of cancer, neurological disorders and heart disease.

With two separate cyclotrons
, one of which is being remodeled to serve as an isotope factory in the near future, Texas A&M's Cyclotron
Institute is poised to even further expand its reputation as one of the United States' leading scientific research establishments.
OTTAWA, Ontario -- Best Theratronics Ltd [BTL] plans to address the worldwide medical isotope shortage by manufacturing a range of cyclotrons
for the production of diagnostic and therapeutic medical isotopes.
By locating cyclotrons
near its nuclear pharmacy sites, Cardinal Health can quickly distribute FDG to a greater number of hospitals, clinics and research facilities using its comprehensive fleet and logistics capabilities.
