German PET pharmaceuticals maker builds plant in Warsaw


Eckert & Ziegler (E&Z), a global provider of isotope technology for medical use, on 27 April announced that it has started construction work on a factory of cyclotron-based PET radiopharmaceuticals in the Warsaw area. The value of the investment is €7m. The 6,000 m2 facility will consist of a supply cyclotron for commercial production of FDG as well as GMP laboratories for research and development of new radiodiagnostic agents. The plant will be able to supply FDG Fludeoxyglucose (18F) and other tracers for cancer imaging diagnostics to nuclear medical facilities in Warsaw and the central and eastern regions of Poland.

The group says it has selected Warsaw because of the availability of highly qualified, skilled personnel and the large number of nuclear medical facilities in the region. Its location near the beltway and Warsaw's city centre will enable fast delivery of short half-life radiopharmaceuticals to the cancer diagnostic centres, E&Z notes.

Berlin-based E&Z has approximately 590 employees, and is one of the world's largest suppliers of isotope based technical components used in the early diagnosis of cancer and subsequent radiation therapy.
