Medical Isotope Services

BWX Technologies, Inc. is dedicated to the processing, packaging and delivery of medical isotopes that aid millions of people around the world.

Following our acquisition of Nordion, the focus on safety, quality, and customer service that made the subsidiary a world leader within the medical isotopes and radiopharmaceuticals industry remains the same. We are committed to being a trusted source for critical isotopes required in diagnostic procedures, treatments and research. Our customers can expect the same high level of excellence they are accustomed to through our processing, packing and delivery services.

World-class Processing

We have an unparalleled base of technical expertise and production capabilities. State-of-the-art facilities provide a reliable supply of isotopes to customers around the world.

Regulatory-approved Packaging

We offer a variety of packaging options:

  • All BWXT transport containers conform to regulations specified by relevant international and domestic regulatory authorities
  • Where possible, shipments are made in non-returnable disposable transport containers
  • For larger quantities, returnable transport containers can be used

World-class Delivery Service

Our proven distribution system is world-recognized for its sophistication and responsiveness. Our unique, software-based order management system and carefully planned transportation logistics focus on products reaching their destinations on time and usually in less than 24 hours.

Adherence to Regulatory Requirements

We follow the regulatory requirements established by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Both the CNSC and NRC require that, prior to release of radioactive shipments, we must verify that purchasers of radioactive materials—regardless of their location in the world—possess all authorization permitting them to possess the quantities of radioactive materials being shipped.

Customs Clearance

If you plan to purchase isotopes from BWXT, please note the following:

  • Isotopes enter the U.S. duty-free. We routinely arrange clearance through U.S. Customs for goods shipped from Canada
  • For shipments outside of the U.S. and Canada, the purchaser is responsible for the clearance of shipments consigned to them

We welcome your questions and encourage you to learn more about any of our medical isotopes:
