The DOE Isotope Program is developing production of strontium-89 (Sr-89) and will engage in routine production if there is sufficient demand. The National Isotope Development Center is planning to have millicurie quantities of non-GMP strontium-89 (Sr-89) solution available for evaluation by potential users. The distribution of samples is planned for mid-January, 2016. Please reply to…
The Department of Energy’s Isotope Program has set aside two days (Wednesday, October 28, and Thursday, October 29, 2015) for “one on one” meetings with stakeholders and interested commercial customers to discuss isotope supply and demand issues. The meetings will be held at the DOE Germantown, Maryland offices, or at a nearby location. The meetings provide an opportunity for the isotope…
In 2014, the DOE/NSF Nuclear Science Advisory Committee (NSAC) was charged with conducting a new study of the opportunities and priorities for isotope research and production as part of an effort to develop a new long-range strategic plan for the DOE Isotope Program. In response, NSAC formed the NSAC Isotope (NSACI) sub-committee, chaired by Dr. Lawrence Cardman of the Thomas Jefferson National…
The NIDC is soliciting interest for independent evaluation studies of Ac-225 produced at our accelerator facilities at Brookhaven and Los Alamos National Laboratories. This evaluation, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Isotope Program in the Office of Nuclear Physics, is part of the ongoing analysis of product performance and acceptance criteria. The key feature and focus of the…
