Brotech and CNIC will work together to help further realize the benefits that medical isotopes bring to Canadians and people around the world.
Brotech Precision, is pleased to announce that it has joined a growing list of Canadian organizations that are members of the Canadian Nuclear Isotope Council (CNIC).
Brotech Precision has history of demonstrated excellence in the precision machining business, which is why they are a critical supplier of Cobalt-60 capsules to Nordion, Canada’s preeminent Cobalt-60 processor. Brotech Precision CNC is also playing a critical role in Canada largest infrastructure project, which will see the company contribute 1,028 assemblies per unit, for a total of 6,168 over the life of the six-unit Major Component Replacement Project at Bruce Power which will assure the production of life-saving isotopes through 2064.
“The CNIC is creating a unified voice that is bringing attention to the work being done in the medical isotope industry in Canada. Advancement and investment in this area has a direct benefit to Canadian cancer patients who rely on the supply of medical isotopes daily to hospitals across Canada,” said Jerome Horowitz, Vice President, Brotech Precision CNC.
As the world’s leader in the production of radioisotopes, Canadian nuclear innovations have been used to aid scientific and technological advances in gamma sterilization for medical devices, securing global food supply, industrial smoke alarms, oil drilling research, and, of course, medical diagnostics and imaging. While radioisotopes have been used for detection and diagnosis, they are now also being utilized to develop more sophisticated medical therapies and treatments.
“The world has come to depend on a commitment that every Canadian government has supported for over 50 years,” said James Scongack chair of the CNIC. “As the world’s leader in the production of radioisotopes, Canadian nuclear innovations have been used to add scientific and technological advances in gamma sterilization for medical devices, securing global food supply, industrial smoke alarms, oil drilling research, and, of course, medical diagnostics and imaging. To continue this effort the CNIC must continue to grow and become the trusted voice on isotopes in Canada”
Radioisotopes are critical to serve the broad needs of modern society for a variety of applications in the health, energy, and sterilization sectors. The CNIC serves as a voice to safeguard the continued availability of radioisotopes, ensuring our public policies are risk-informed, science-based, and support the highest levels of public health and safety.
Leveraging existing infrastructure and expertise will have a significant positive impact on human health across the globe, keeping hospitals clean and safe while expanding Canada’s leadership role in the global community by supporting new and innovative patient treatments.
