Optimized production route
Cyclone® KIUBE

Cyclone® KIUBE

<p>To produce <sup>11</sup>C, the protons need to reach the target at 16- 18MeV. The Cyclone<sup>®&nbsp;</sup>KIUBE is thus ideal for <sup>11</sup>C production. This cyclotron has 8 exit ports, giving you the flexibility to produce a wide range of radioisotopes.&nbsp;</p> More about Cyclone® KIUBE
