Title: Production of Positron Emitting Radiometals: Cu-64, Y-86, Zr-89 Final report

This proposal seeks support to increase our production of the radionuclides yttrium-86 and zirconium-89 while continuing to produce copper-64. We have the advantage that we already ship out copper-64 to some 20-25 institutions per week (over 60 different institutions total including 4 Canadian sites) and thus our group already has significant experience with producing, purifying and shipping radioactive materials. A significant portion of the funds requested supported the purchase of a new hotcell for the production of zirconium-89 and yttrium-86.
