100 Isotope Production Facilities
 
This database contains 100 Research Reactors performing Isotope Production distributed over 45 Member States.
Note that this view includes Reactors of the following status: ()
OPERATIONAL, TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN, UNDER CONSTRUCTION, PLANNED

Depending on the available neutron flux, a large number of isotopes can be produced: 24Na, 32P, 38Cl, 56Mn, 41Ar, 64Cu, 198Au, 90Y, 99Mo, 125I, 131I, 133Xe, 14C, 35S, 51Cr, 60Co, 89Sr, 153Sm, 169Yb, 170Tm, 192Ir, etc. Radioactive isotopes are used in medicine, industry, research, and other areas.
