A Compact Neutron Source Designed for the Hospital Environment
Neutron Therapeutics has developed an accelerator-based, in-hospital neutron source to replace the previously required nuclear reactor. This source is composed of a 2.6 MeV electrostatic proton accelerator and a rotating, solid lithium target for generating neutrons. Neutron Therapeutics will provide this neutron source as part of a comprehensive therapeutic treatment suite, that will combine all of the necessary components for BNCT treatment into a user-friendly package.
- 2.6 MeV Electrostatic Proton Accelerator
- Reliable operation at 30 mA for high patient throughput
- Cost-effective in-hospital design
- Rotating Solid Lithium Target
- Excellent neutron beam quality
- Solid target is safe and reliable
- Excellent lifetime and automated service minimize cost of ownership
The nuBeam Suite
The nuBeam suite* is a complete BNCT solution, including beam-shaping assembly, patient positioning systems and ancillary equipment. Neutron Therapeutics can also provide fully vetted shielding bunker solutions custom designed for neutron radiation.
* The nuBeam suite is an investigational product and has not been approved by the FDA or PMDA.
