Description
An externally controllable sealed isotope generator has been proposed for radiation education activities. Column(68Ge-68Ga and 137Cs-137mBa) and solvent extraction (68Ge-68Ga)-based isotope generators were applied asradioactive sources. These generators showed high milking efficiencies and low breakthrough after repeateduses, and are expected to promote the use of isotope generators without radioactive contamination or theemission of radioactive waste. This isotope generator provides a new concept for sealed radioisotope sources.
