As a national research and development laboratory, the Institute of Nuclear Energy (INER) is specialized in nuclear energy and radiation applications. Our first priority is the research and development of nuclear energy safety, radiation protection, emergency response, and nuclear back-end related technology. Along with the change of time and national policies, INER performs work on the fields of radiopharmaceuticals and medical materials, and green energy applications. We have accumulated a lot of tradable technologies and patents and offered technology transfer, technical service, and cooperative development to assist domestic enterprises in product development, innovation process, and system improvement with high performance.
With the recent development of precise therapy and personalized medicine, INER chooses nuclear medicine and imaging technology as priority research and development field, based on the concept of what we see what we treat.
INER has already a mature infrastructure, including drug discovery, 30MeV cyclotron (supply medical isotopes), optimization of lead compounds, preclinical study, clinical trials (IND), registration (NDA), PIC/S GMP manufacturing production facility (including raw materials and drugs), drug marketing, etc. In addition, INER also has several important radiation biomedical facilities such as PET, SPECT, MRI and CT, etc. INER is the only domestic R&D institute with integration of nuclear imaging applications and clinical trials, as well as industry counseling, technology transfer capabilities.
INER is dedicated to radiopharmaceutical developing based on medical needs. We have several radiopharmaceutical productions offered to hospitals, such as INER Thallous Chloride (Tl-201) Injection, INER Gallium Citrate (Ga-67) Injection, INER ECD Kit, INER MIBI Kit, INER ECD Kit, and INER MAG3 Kit, etc.
INER has established the GLP-certified radio-toxicology laboratory, the TAF-certified molecular imaging and radio-pharmacology laboratory and the C-14 drug metabolism analysis test platform. In past 10 years, we have provided over 138 technical services for industry, hospitals, universities and research institutes, also collaboration and networking with DCB, ITRI. We expect to expand to the international market.
