Working field: New shielded packaging container for future nuclear medicine isotopes produced at the CERN-MEDICIS facility.

In order to transport the isotopes produced at the CERN-MEDICIS facility to different Research Institute or Laboratories, a new shielded container has to be developed. Indeed, the Activity threshold for the non-conventional isotopes transport given by the current European regulation is lower than the classical Activity needed for human injection. A safety transport has to be made using a ‘type B’ container. A system aiming to directly collect the isotopes coming from the MEDICIS mass separator into the shipping container will be designed. Part of this project is also the study of the mass separation and the definition of the best production parameters of some interesting isotopes for nuclear medicine research, in particular At-211 and Sc-47.
