Rosatom has begun construction of a new plant for the production of medical isotope products at the Karpov Scientific Research Institute of Physics & Chemistry in Obninsk, Kaluga region. The plant will produce a wide range of radiopharmaceuticals including those based on iodine-131, samarium-153, and molybdenum-99 isotopes. It will also develop promising active radiopharmaceuticals based on lutetium-177, actinium-225, radium-223 and other isotopes. Once completed, in 2025, it will be the largest such facility in Europe, Rosatom says. It will operate in accordance with international GMP (good manufacturing practice) standards.

Rosatom has launched a trial operation of the first industrial facilities at the Centre for Nuclear Research and Technology (CNRT) under construction in El Alto, Bolivia, the world’s highest altitude nuclear centre situated 4,000 metres above sea level. A ceremony was held to marking trial operation the first industrial facilities of the CNRT - the preclinical cyclotron-radiopharmacological complex (PCRC) and the multipurpose irradiation centre (MCC). The event was attended by CEO of the Bolivian Atomic Energy Agency Ortesia Jimenez and President of JSC Rusatom Overseas Evgeny Pakermanov.

The facility will include a will include a water-cooled research reactor, an experimental gamma-installation, a cyclotron and radiopharmacology complex, engineering facilities and various laboratories. Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom said it has successfully tested facilities for the production of radiopharmaceuticals at a $300m nuclear research complex in Bolivia.

According to Rosatom, radiopharmaceuticals produced at the site will be used in more than 5,000 medical procedures a year in Bolivia. Radiopharmaceuticals, or medicinal radiocompounds, are a group of pharmaceutical drugs containing radioactive isotopes. They can be used as diagnostic and therapeutic agents.

Rosatom said commissioning work is continuing at the facility, which will include a water-cooled research reactor with nominal power of up to 200 kW, an experimental gamma-installation, a cyclotron and radiopharmacology complex, engineering facilities and various laboratories.
