Cambridge Isotope Separations (CIS) - Xenia, OH USAShare
CIS is the world leader in the separation of 13C and 18O. CIL separates both 13C and 18O at its Xenia, Ohio, facility and has the world’s largest production capacity for both 13C and 18O. CIL also has the only large capacity nongovernmental D2O (Deuterium Oxide) enrichment columns in the world located at its CIS facility.
Carbon-13 Isotope Separation Facility
CIL is recognized as the world leader in the separation of 13C. In the 1980s, CIL took the initiative to construct the world’s largest 13C isotope-separation plant in order to provide a sufficient supply of 13C starting materials to support new research and diagnostic developments. CIL recently embarked on a significant expansion of its 13C production capacity and maintains its leadership position in the separation of 13C.
Oxygen-18 Isotope Separation Facility
In 2000, CIL responded to the worldwide shortage of 18O water by embarking on the construction of the world’s largest 18O isotope-separation facility. Responding to the increasing needs of the nuclear medicine community, CIL has increased production capacity of 18O multiple times since 2000. With each expansion, CIL has maintained its position as the world’s leading producer of 18O. CIL’s 18O water is used in positron emission tomography (PET) and energy-expenditure studies.
CIL's senior engineers have combined over 110 years of isotope-separation experience.
