IRE and NTP : supplyA long-standing and successful relationship

  • A historical relation initiated by IRE in the 90s

  • Two partners of similar sizes, backing each other up on the main radio-isotopes

  • Similar business cultures focused on patient safety and security of supply

  • The IRE-NTP consortium meets ca. 50% of the world demand in medical radioisotopes

  • In shortage times, we ramp up to 70% of the world market

  • >> a highly valued cooperation by the nuclear medicine community on 5 continents !!
