Cu67Copper 67

Copper-67 is a radioisotope used for treatment in targeted radionuclide therapy. It is a beta emitter and has a half-life of 61 hours minutes. 67Cu is mainly used for the treatment of cancer such as prostate cancer, cervix cancer, neuroendocrine tumours and breast cancer.

To produce Copper 67,
we recommend this production route:

  • Recommended


    Rhodotron® TT300 HE

    The electrons are accelerated to generate an electron beam at 40 MeV to reach the target

    Custom target

    68Zn  in the target is irradiated creating the 68Zn(g,p)67Cu reaction.
