Isotope Production Facilities - "Click here for details"

This database contains 84 research reactors performing Isotope Production distributed over 44 Member States.

Depending on the available neutron flux, a large number of isotopes can be produced: 24Na, 32P, 38Cl, 56Mn, 41Ar, 64Cu, 198Au, 90Y, 99Mo, 125I, 131I, 133Xe, 14C, 35S, 51Cr, 60Co, 89Sr, 153Sm, 169Yb, 170Tm, 192Ir, etc. Radioactive isotopes are used in medicine, industry, research, and other areas.
