MEDraysintell Releases Unique Cyclotron Directory

The report provides an extensive review of all cyclotrons installed or recently sold in all countries and regions of the world with an exhaustive profile of the 15 companies currently developing and/or supplying cyclotrons, along with a description of twelve firms that were active in this market in the past, but which no longer offer cyclotrons for sale, either as the company was taken over or they have ceased that activity

 “Cyclotrons used in Nuclear Medicine Report & Directory, Edition 2020” that describes close to 1,500 medical cyclotrons worldwide

March 10, 2020 — MEDraysintell released its new and unique report “Cyclotrons used in Nuclear Medicine Report & Directory, Edition 2020” that describes close to 1,500 medical cyclotrons worldwide. This second edition of the Cyclotrons Report and Directory is the result of a comprehensive collection of data over the past year that allowed MEDraysintell to identify as many as 1,484 cyclotrons dedicated to the production of medical radionuclides installed worldwide. This 450-page report provides an extensive review of all cyclotrons installed or recently sold in all countries and regions of the world with an exhaustive profile of the 15 companies currently developing and/or supplying cyclotrons, along with a description of twelve firms that were active in this market in the past, but which no longer offer cyclotrons for sale, either as the company was taken over or they have ceased that activity. The global cyclotron market was valued at more than $180 million in 2019. The top three main suppliers of cyclotrons do share almost 70 percent of the world market installed base (in units), and some new comers entered the market recently.
