BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY

In 2007 & 2009 the world experienced shortages due to reactor outages, highlighting the vulnerability of the current supply chain. The shortages caused in significant price increases, delayed and canceled medical procedures and resulted in a decrease in patient care. In response, ARTMS Products Inc. developed an award-winning, first-to-market, locally deployable method for producing Tc-99m using existing, hospital-based medical cyclotrons. ARTMS holds the exclusive global commercialization rights to the award-winning and proprietary Canadian technology that addresses these challenges and offers the prospect of revolutionizing the nuclear medicine industry.

Cyclotron-based gallium-68 generator breaks production records

26 Nov 2019 Tami Freeman Gallium-68 (68Ga) is a positron emitter that’s becoming established as a valuable diagnostic isotope, primarily for detection of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). Such tumours do not metabolize glucose well – precluding their visualization via standard FDG-PET […]

Competition heats up to produce medical radioisotope

15 Nov 2019 David Kramer Two North American companies hope their novel production processes for technetium-99m give them a leg up in an increasingly crowded market. The global supply chain for the world’s most-used radioisotope, the medical imaging tracer technetium-99m, […]

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 […]
