Eden Radioisotopes LLC, a New Mexico company, secured funding this year and located 240 acres of land in the southeastern corner of the state to build a small reactor that will exclusively produce medical isotopes. The concept was developed and licensed by Sandia National Laboratories to help establish a stable domestic supply of medical isotopes, which are made with low-enriched uranium and help diagnose a number of diseases. Adjustments to the license made earlier this year by Sandia helped Eden secure funding. This effort earned one of four regional Excellence in Technology Transfer Awards from the Federal Laboratory Consortium, an association that recognizes industry and federal laboratories for outstanding work to develop and commercialize innovative technologies.
