November 2020 Isotope Availability
The DOE Isotope Program is pleased to announce the availability of some of our newest isotopes for purchase.
A small quantity of rare berkelium-249 is available now and quote requests should be placed by mid-November. The isotope is of particular interest in heavy-element chemistry and nuclear physics research.
A new batch of high-specific activity copper-67 will tentatively be ready to ship to customers in mid-December. The DOE IP has developed this production capability to increase the domestic supply of this isotope to the research community.
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.
