This announcement is intended to seek information from private companies on their potential isotope needs for the next five years and is not a Request for Proposal (RFP) or an Invitation for Bid (IFB), nor is it to be construed as a commitment by the Government. The Government does not intend to contract on the basis of this request or otherwise pay for any information solicited herein. The…
The Medical Isotope Research and Production (MIRP) Program in the Collider-Accelerator Department is funded by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics to produce and distribute radioisotopes for nuclear medicine research and clinical practice, and to develop radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals for new applications in medicine and science. This program uses the Brookhaven…
Among the many radioisotopes, the Department of Energy's Isotope Program has been producing and distributing germanium-68 (68Ge) for research and commercial applications for many years. Germanium-68 has a half-life of 271 days and decays to the radionuclide gallium-68 (68Ga, half-life 68 minutes). Germanium-68 has been mainly utilized as a reference source for the calibration and normalization of…
For the third year, DOE is planning to conduct a Helium-3 (He-3) auction. 4,000 liters of He-3 gas will be available for bids in a process similar to the one conducted late in 2013. DOE's Solicitation for Bids for the purchase of He-3 gas has been posted for viewing and downloading at this website's He-3 auction page on August 1, 2014. After the Solicitation for Bids is issued, DOE will accept…
The NIDC has microgram quantities of berkelium-249 available for interested researchers. You may request a price quotation at http://isotopes.gov/catalog/product.php?element=Berkelium&type=rad&rad_product_index=7.
The Office of Science has announced the opening for applications to the 2014 DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program. Isotope Production Research is a topic of interest for this announcement. Applications are due no later than September 24, 2014, at 5:00 p.m., EST. Interested persons may get further information about the program at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/…
