26 January 2024

Rosatom’s JSC Izotop in 2023 increased the annual export of isotope supplies by 15%. The was achieved through contracts with customers in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the CIS, Izotop said. In particular, agreements with enterprises in China and India made it possible to increase revenue in these countries respectively by one and a half and three times.

At the same time, the geography of the supply of isotope products has expanded. After a break of many years, a batch of Russian sources based on cobalt-60 was delivered to Middle Eastern radiation centres. In addition, uninterrupted deliveries of the Macrotech technetium-99 generator to Belarus and Russian-made gallium-68 generator to Kazakhstan were ensured. Cooperation with Latin American countries also expanded. In 2023, a five-year contract was concluded with Brazil for the supply of medical products. And from January 2024, clinics of the Republic of Cuba have begun to receive the first regular deliveries of molybdenum-99 and iodine-131.

Izotop Director General Maxim Kushnarev said: “Developing cooperation with new partners and starting supplies of vital isotopes to these regions will increase the availability of specialized medical care and help save hundreds of thousands of lives.”
