University of Alberta Medical Isotope and Cyclotron
The Medical Isotope and Cyclotron Facility at the University of Alberta’s south campus houses a $28-million cyclotron research and production facility that produces clinical-quality technetium-99m, an isotope used for 80% of nuclear medicine diagnostic procedures. MCW Hemisphere provided mechanical and electrical engineering services for the renovation, renewal, and repurposing of what was once a curling facility. As part of this repurposing project, a mezzanine was added along with a 2-storey addition which provided space for a specialized vault to house the 24MeV particle accelerator (cyclotron), hot cells, specialized laboratory space for handling, research, and managing of the process streams and space for academic, administrative, and research teams.
