Eckert & Ziegler aligns with German firm for radioisotope production
Eckert & Ziegler Strahlen- und Medizintechnik AG has closed an exclusive sales agreement with the Karlsruhe, Germany-based ZAG Zyklotron AG for the regular delivery of 18F-FDG.

Eckert & Ziegler has also acquired the option for producing and selling other radio-diagnostic products at the Karlsruhe cyclotron.

Eckert & Ziegler already operates several production sites for radiopharmaceuticals in Germany and, besides F-18-based radiodiagnostic products for PET imaging, markets the approved product "Yttriga," a precursor product of numerous radiotherapeutic products.

The Berlin-based Eckert & Ziegler also provides synthesis technology and gallium-68 radionuclide generators for nuclear medical institutions worldwide.
