BARCELONA, Spain, June 1 /PRNewswire/
Von Gahlen’s Hot Cell Bank will play an important role in the production of important medical isotopes.
Shine Technologies and Van Galen International announced today that Shine’s Supercell has passed acceptance testing. The completion of this experiment has resulted in a bank of ten heated cells, the SuperCell, now being prepared for final shipment to Shine’s large medical isotope production facility “Chrysalis” in Janesville, Wisconsin.
The supercell becomes the critical process Production of medical isotopes Place including extraction, purification and packaging Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99). The medical isotope is used on more than 40 million patients worldwide each year, and SuperCell will play a key role in SHINE’s ability to produce 20 million doses of Mo-99 annually. Von Gahlen was awarded the Supercell contract based on his expertise in developing critical solutions for nuclear medicine and radiopharmaceuticals, his commitment to the SHINE program and his alignment with SHINE’s core values.
“We are grateful to have been chosen as a partner in this project and we welcome the challenge of creating something unique,” said Jaap Duiker, Managing Director of Von Gahlen. “Knowing that this work involves 20 million patients who may be at risk of cancer or heart disease makes this project even more special. We look forward to continuing to work with Shine and sharing his vision for a safer, healthier and cleaner world.”
The installation of the supercell is critical to the substantial completion of construction, a key milestone in obtaining an operating license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. SHINE expects to obtain this license in 2023.
“I’m excited to see SuperCell’s progress on my recent trips to Europe and see it pass the test and move to Wisconsin. This represents another important step toward becoming the world’s first fusion facility dedicated solely to producing medical isotopes and improving patient care in the U.S. and around the world,” said Greg Piefer, Shine’s founder and CEO. ” “I am very impressed. I am grateful for Von Gahlen’s ability and our continued partnership to deliver this complex, unique project. Von Gahlen has set a new standard in hot cell manufacturing, and we are excited to bring this system to Chrysalis.” for one billion doses of medication over its lifetime.”
SHINE intends to leverage the knowledge and experience gained from building a medical isotope facility in Wisconsin to accelerate a sister facility in Windham, the Netherlands.
“In light of this milestone, we are confident that Shine Europe’s manufacturing facility in Windham, the Netherlands, will be completed on time,” said Shine Europe’s general manager, serving patients in Europe and the rest of the world.
