We will work to address your concerns and will gladly do what we can to make sure your needs are met. There will be no penalties for changes to contracts due to COVID-19 impacts.
COVID-19 Impact to Isotope Supply Chains
We are closely monitoring international isotope supply ad demand. We are assessing production capabilities and preparing to ramp-up production for critical isotopes if a shortage should occur in the coming weeks or months. If you have concerns about the stability of an isotope supply chain, please bring your concerns to our attention.
Reaching Out to Domestic Isotope Suppliers
If you are a producer of isotopes in the United States and are being negatively impacted by COVID-19, let us know. If we have the capability to produce that isotope, we might be able to help.
