Press Release

January 13, 2015 - OTTAWA – 10:30am to 1:00pm ET

BTL manufactures a range of Medical Cyclotrons, Radiation Therapy Equipment (for Cancer Treatment and Research) Blood and Research Irradiators for Medical diagnosis and treatment.

The company has been existing for 60 years.  This was bought by me in 2008 May and I have invested more than $40 Million CAD in New Product Development, the most in nearly 30 years of this company's operation.

The Open House will showcase all the Company's products, with an emphasis on the newest Product Line of Cyclotrons for Medical Radioisotope Production and Research.  These are 5 different Cyclotrons, 14/15 MeV, 25 MeV, 28 MeV, 35 MeV and 70 MeV.  These use the latest technological innovations and the first in the world to make such a large range of Modern Cyclotrons to address the anticipated global shortage of Reactor Produced Radioisotopes, with the planned shut down of the Reactor production of Moly 99 (at Chalk River Reactor, in Canada) for use in Nuclear Medicine, globally for a range of medical diagnosis as our Cyclotrons will be capable of producing these needed radioisotopes.

Also the first ever (in North America) 70 MeV Cyclotron, designed and built in Canada, will be shipped to our customer, INFN (Italian National Laboratory), in a few weeks.  This is a 4 year project, sold for $15 million plus CAD, and weighs nearly 200 tons.

This is a Historic accomplishment, for BTL (the very first Cyclotron ever designed and produced by BTL since its inception 60 years ago) and for Canada.

The Open House will be the last chance for others to see this Cyclotron, before it is dismantled to be crated for shipment to Italy soon thereafter.

Sincerely yours,
