SHINE Medical Technologies, Inc. (SHINE), a Wisconsin‐based company dedicated to being the world leader in safe, clean, affordable production of medical isotopes, announced today that it has entered into a strategic long‐term supply agreement with GE Healthcare, a division of the General Electric Company, for supply of molybdenum‐99 (moly‐ 99).
Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it has signed a contract with Ultra Electronics’ Nuclear Control Systems business to supply a thermal neutron generation system to their U.K. facility in late 2014. Ultra Electronics is a leading British defense, security, transport, and energy company with strong ties to nuclear power generation.
Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it reached a major technical milestone by successfully producing 3×1011 neutrons per second with the deuterium-deuterium fusion reaction. Meeting this milestone was a major step in validating PNL’s gas target neutron generator as the technology that will drive the subcritical assemblies under development by SHINE Medical Technologies (SHINE) for the production of the medical isotope molybdenum-99 (Mo-99).
Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to design a neutron diffraction test platform for bulk residual stress analysis of aircraft components.
Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it has successfully installed its first neutron generator for neutron radiography in the Radiography Laboratory at the US Army Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey. This achievement is the result of several years of development at PNL funded by the Department of Defense.
Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it was awarded a Phase I SBIR contract from the Department of Energy to develop a high current, DC, long lifetime negative hydrogen ion source. The contract duration is 6 months and totals $150,000.
Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it has successfully acquired neutron radiographic images using its prototype high flux neutron generator. Three images were obtained of several different kinds of ammunition. The images were acquired in the PNL laboratory and shipped to the Radiography Laboratory at the Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey where they were processed and analyzed by US Army radiography specialists.
Phoenix Nuclear Labs announced today that it has been awarded two contracts with the US Army for new applications of its platform technology. Phoenix Nuclear Labs was awarded an $879,000 SBIR Phase II Enhancement grant to design and build a high flux neutron generator for mobile detection of improvised explosive devices (IED’s).
Ahead of this week’s Society of Nuclear Medicine meeting and the July gathering of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United States is announcing steps to ensure the reliable supply of medical isotopes while minimizing the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) for civilian purposes.
Phoenix Nuclear Labs announced today it has joined the EDGE® Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative enabling industry and academia, with government input, to work together to enhance the delivery cycle of new technologies and innovative capabilities to warfighters and first responders. “We look forward to working with the broad range of companies within the EDGE network,” said Ross Radel, president of Phoenix Nuclear Labs.
