124I is obtained from the irradiation of a solid target at 14 MeV. Cyclone® KIUBE can have different fixed exit energy with its Custom Energy feature enabling you to reach the highest purity.
Cyclone® KIUBE can also be equipped with a degrader foil on the solid target.
Nirta® solid target
Highly enriched 124TeO2 (> 99.5 %) powder is melted onto a platinum disk and placed within the Nirta® solid target. The target material is then irradiated.
> 50 mCi at 14.9 MeV, 20µA, irradiation for 8 h.
The radioiodine separation is accomplished via thermo distillation with the HighMOR® system at high temperature to release the iodine. Iodine is then trapped into a solution. This fully automated process is controlled by user-friendly software interface.
