Nirta® XETI gas target

Nirta® XETI gas target

<p>Gas target loaded with enriched <sup>124</sup>Xenon to provide <sup>123</sup>I by natural decay. The gas target has a cryogenic recovery system for <sup>124</sup>Xe (working in closed loop). The <sup>123</sup>I is extracted by washing target with pure water.</p>

HighMOR®

HighMOR®

<p>The radioiodine separation is accomplished via thermo-distillation with the <span>HighMOR</span><sup>®</sup> system at &nbsp;high temperature to release the iodine. Iodine is then trapped into a solution. This fully automated process is controlled by user-friendly software interface allowing separation in less than 4h.</p> More about HighMOR®
