Beam Diagnostics

A new technique of beam diagnostics is tested.
ZAG Zyklotron AG has developed a new method of beam diagnostics for its cyclotrons, based on infrared technology (see the scheme below).

Strahldiagnostik Schema 141127

The technique can be applied during irradiation of targets.
The thermal images have a very good quality, due to the selection of the suitable foil and the appropriate programming of the cam, (Area  1 = 10 x 10 mm2):

Zr 89 for PET

6.2 Nuklidkarte Zr89 100px Zr 89 is very advantageous for tumor diagnostics with PET (positron emission tomography) using labeled antibodies. The development of a manufacturing process for isotopically pure Zirconium 89 had been carried out as a project together with co-workers of Institut für Physikalische Chemie of Hochschule Mannheim, financially supported by BMWT - within the scope of the central innovation program medium sized companies (ZIM).

A beam current of 70 µA is applied routinely.
The manufacturing process is completed.

10 Years ZAG Zyklotron AG

ZAG Zyklotron AG celebrates its 10th anniversary of active production. ZAG entered in 2004 into production and can look back on 10 successful years:
of reliable production and delivery of

  • radioisotopes for medicine,
  • activations for radionuclide technique in mechanical engineering (RTM),
  • RTM measurement systems and KIPROS targets for I 123 production;

as well as the development of new products and further development of our standard production.

Our anniversary we celebrated on 10/10/2014 together with many guests, our coworkers and their families in the pavilion in front of our new office building:
