The Ionetix research and development team has played a significant role in developing a majority of all the super conducting accelerators used today.
Ionetix Corporation was founded to commercialize superconducting cyclotron technology developed at the MIT Plasma Fusion Laboratory. We’re the first company to apply this innovation to create a compact, affordable, simple-to-operate cyclotron for the production of PET radioisotopes.
Cyclotrons use magnets to direct accelerating protons in a circular path until they collide with a target, producing PET radioisotopes.
Why we’re different
Ionetix has developed the next generation, first-of-its-kind cyclotron representing an order of magnitude improvement over conventional cyclotron technology. The ION-12 SC uses a patent-protected design based on superconducting magnets to shrink its footprint.
With an innovative, ultra-compact design, the system can be installed directly in the clinic or nuclear cardiology department, fully integrating the tracer production at the point of imaging.
Why it matters
We believe this technology will usher in an era in which PET radioisotopes can be produced on-demand within the clinic or hospital. Considering the limited availability of these radiopharmaceuticals until now and their short half-lives, plus the size, expense, and complexity of conventional cyclotrons, this is a major step forward in the diagnostic capability of nuclear imaging.
