Optimized production route
Cyclone® KIUBE

Cyclone® KIUBE

<p><sup>89</sup>Zr is produced on a cyclotron using proton bombardment (14-14,5MeV). This can be obtained using the Cyclone<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;KIUBE Custom Energy feature or a degrader foil. &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;</p> More about Cyclone® KIUBE

Nirta® solid targets

<p>The production of <sup>89</sup>Zr, from the <sup>89</sup>Y( p,n)<sup>89</sup>Zr only requires a natural <sup>89</sup>Y-foil as target material. This foil is then placed onto a aluminium/copper disk in the Nirta<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;Solid target. The target material is then irradiated and it is manually or automatically transferred to a hot cell.</p> More about Nirta® Solid target
