ROSATOM Increases Its Annual Export of Isotope Products by 15%

At the same time, the geography of isotope product supplies has also expanded. After an interruption that lasted many years, a shipment of Russian cobalt-60-based sources was delivered to Middle Eastern irradiation centers. The company has ensured uninterrupted supplies of the drug Macrotech, a technetium-99 generator to the Republic of Belarus and a Russian-made gallium-68 generator to the Republic of Kazakhstan. The cooperation with Latin American countries has expanded. Thus, in 2023, the company signed a five-year medical product supply contract with Brazil. In addition, since January 2024, clinics of the Republic of Cuba have begun to receive the first regular supplies of molybdenum-99, a diagnostic isotope used to detect cardiovascular and cancer diseases, and iodine-131, a theranostic isotope utilized to diagnose and treat thyroid diseases.

According to Maksim Kushnarev, Director General of Isotope JSC, "Developing our cooperation with new partners and starting supplies of vital isotopes to these regions will increase the availability of specialized medical care and help save hundreds of thousands of lives."
