Making what's possible, accessible


Nusano is a private company that intends to bring stability to the underserved market of radioisotopes. We have developed a high current ion source and linear accelerator that allows us to remove the current limitations of radioisotopes manufacturing for medical application and innovation. The facility will include full processing for cGMP radioisotope production.

Our Technology is Unique High-Yield Efficient Eco-Friendly Flexible

Medical Radioisotopes

Radioisotopes are extraordinarily valuable in the medical field, enabling diagnostic imaging and therapeutics to detect illnesses and fight early-stage cancers. 

Declining Global Supply

The high operating cost of existing production methods, combined with a declining number of production facilities, is causing a global bottleneck that requires a new approach.

"From research into fundamental [Actinium] chemistry to the most promising clinical trials, the development of Actinium radiopharmaceuticals is slowed by the small supply and resulting high cost that makes it inaccessible to many researchers.
