Sterigenics International and Nordion Announce Landmark Canada-U.S. Partnership Agreement to Provide a Long-Term, Reliable Supply of Medical Isotopes
Feb 20 15
Sterigenics International LLC and Nordion announced agreements with General Atomics and the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center to establish a new, reliable supply of medical isotopes that will serve millions of patients around the world. Nordion's current supply of Mo-99 is from the National Research Universal reactor at Chalk River, Ontario, operated by Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. The NRU is scheduled to cease routine production of Mo-99 in November 2016. However the Government of Canada announced recently that it will support the extension of the NRU operations until March 31, 2018 to help support global medical isotope demand in the unexpected circumstances of shortages during this time. This new medical isotope supply will be produced using General Atomics' innovative Selective Gaseous Extraction technology. The targets used will incorporate Low Enriched Uranium, in line with Nordion's commitment to the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration's Global Threat Reduction Initiative.
