TeamBest Companies Have Been Making Significant Investments in Cyclotrons and Synchrotrons for Research, Radioisotope Production, and Cancer Therapy
OTTAWA, Ontario & SPRINGFIELD, Va. – (BUSINESS WIRE )– Best Theratronics Ltd. in Ottawa, Ontario along with Best Cyclotron Systems Inc. in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and Best Medical International Inc. in Springfield, Virginia, USA have been designing and developing a range of advanced proton and multi-particle (alpha, deuterons, and protons) cyclotrons, ranging from 15 MeV to 70 MeV. These include 15 MeV, 20 MeV upgradeable to 25 MeV, 25 MeV, 28 MeV upgradeable to 35 MeV, 35 MeV, and 70 MeV.
A 70 MeV Cyclotron was sold, installed, and commissioned at the Italian National Laboratory of Legnaro INFN-LNL last year. Best Cyclotron Systems also recently won an international tender for another 70 MeV Cyclotron for the South Korean National Laboratory, the Institute for Basic Science (IBS).
Currently, Best Cyclotron Systems and Best Theratronics are building seven 15 MeV cyclotrons, one 35 MeV, and one 70 MeV cyclotron for customers.
In addition, Best Medical International is currently designing and developing the first 400 MeV Rapid Cycling Medical Synchrotron for particle therapy with heavy ions (iRCMS), from Protons to Carbon ions for the most effective and accurate cancer treatment.
Best Cyclotron Systems and TeamBest companies will be exhibiting at the upcoming SNMMI 2017 Annual Meeting (Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) in Denver, Colorado, June 9–14, 2017 at booth #863.
