CERCA - Framatome irradiation targets manufacturing and supply for medical isotopes production

CERCA division of Framatome is working in the field of research reactors fuel manufacturing and irradiation targets manufacturing. CERCA activities include fabrication of uranium-base medical-use targets. After irradiation of the target in a reactor, a chemical process extracts the required isotope (e.g. Molybdenum isotope 99, Iodine isotope 131 ...) that can be supplied to hospitals. Such radio-isotopes - e.g. 99Mo the most used in hospitals - are essentials for a high number of medical imaging tests, and in particular for cancer diagnosis, and for cancer treatments. Framatome proposes a comprehensive solution for the supply of activation targets for irradiation reactors.
