Cyclotron equipment

IBA versatile cyclotrons can be configured in many different ways. You will benefit from a complete solution in terms of targetry systems and beam line technology for PET and SPECT production. 

Liquid targets


High power for low enriched water consumption

  • Lowest enriched water consumption on the market
  • Wide range of volumes available: your production capacity will always match your needs (up to 4Ci/ml in 2 hours-run)
  • Quick, easy and low exposure maintenance: simplified design using less parts and requiring less tools

Unique solution for 68Ga production on liquid target

The unique and under patent (EP 15170854) solution for production of 68Ga (for human) use has many advantages :

  • No long-lived 68Ge (271 days) in the final dose
  • Simple & cost-effective (c)GMP in-house use or for distribution production similar to the 18F production process
  • Short irradiation duration
  • No delay for dissolution
  • Requires less hotcells space

Gas targets

For the production of 11C and 15O radioisotopes

Gas irradiation system for the production of [15O]O2 or [15O]H2O, [11C]CH4 or [11C]CO2.

  • Cost-effective solution
  • Simple and rapid process for high activity output

Solid targets

Complete solutions for the production of radiometals and halogen radioisotopes adapted to your needs

Solid targets are irradiation systems used for the production of nonconventional radioisotopes such as:
68Ga,64Cu, 89Zr, 124I, 123I and many others.

  • Nirta® High Power Solid target (max 150µA) is designed for large batch production. This high-end technology allows automatic back and forth transfer of the target capsule including its window or degrader, without any access required to the bunker. It is available with 3 types of capsules with different slanting angles: perpendicular (90°), 35° and 10°.

Beam Lines

Enlarge your Cyclotron possibilities

Vectio® is an external beam transport line that is installed on high energy cyclotrons and that can be installed on the Cyclone® KIUBE. Thanks to its active elements allowing beam shaping and wobbling, it is the tool of choice for high power solid target station or R&D development with particle beam. Different sizes and configurations available.

    Thanks to the combination of the Cyclone® KIUBE and the Nirta® 18F targets, we have a cost-effective solution for large production of 18F, high activity in a short run with low enriched water consumption. We are happy with the reliability and performance and we are proud to produce 60Ci 18F a day to deliver to hospitals for patient diagnosis.

    The Nirta® Solid target is the main instrument for our research program on novel radioisotopes for theranostics. It is a high performance and user-friendly device whose flexibility allowed us to develop a new kind of “coin” target to irradiate enriched materials in form of compressed powder. We have already successfully produced a large variety of non conventional radionuclides as Sc-43, Sc-44, Ga-68, Cu-61, Cu-64, Er-155.
