Isotope Availability January 2021
The DOE Isotope Program is pleased to announce the availability of some of our newest isotopes for purchase.
Request for Berkelium-249, Einsteinium-254, and Fermium-257 Allocation
Small quantities of rare berkelium-249, einsteinium-254, and fermium-257 are available for order now and will ship in July 2021. Bk, Es, and Fm will be available in mg, ug, and pg quantities respectively. The isotopes are of particular interest in heavy-element chemistry and nuclear physics research. If you are interested in one of the above products, please make your request at the link below.
Copper-67 Availability New batches of high-specific activity copper-67 will be ready to ship to customers on February 24, and March 24, 2021. Deadlines to order from these batches are February 11, and March 11 respectively. The DOE IP has developed this production capability to increase the domestic supply of this isotope to the research community and provides batches every month.
A new batch of accelerator-produced actinium-225 will be ready to ship in early February 2021.
This alpha-emitting radionuclide and its decay product bismuth-213, from an actinium-225/bismuth-213 generator, have gained considerable interest within the medical community for their radioimmunotherapy applications. The deadline to order from this batch is January 22, 2021.
A new batch of yttrium-86 is available for purchase. Due to its positron-emitting properties, the isotope holds promise as a PET imaging agent and as a theranostic pair to yttrium-90 for cancer treatment.
Did you know the DOE Isotope Program has astatine-211 available on demand? Produced and shipped through our University Isotope Network, astatine-211 is of interest to the medical community for its use in cancer treatment.
The DOE Isotope Program has Radium-224/Lead-212 generators available on demand. Produced at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the generator can be used to produce both lead-212 and bismuth-212 for cancer research and therapy.
High-specific activity cadmium-109 is currently available. Cadmium-109 is most commonly used as a source for x-ray fluorescence analyses and in environmental research. The DOE IP typically replenishes its inventory of cadmium-109 on an annual basis.
