OCTOPUS project finished successfully28.05.2015
In frame of this project a design, manufacturing and testing of automatic system for irradiated lutetium sample processing in a neutron field of nuclear reactor was realised.
The aim is to achieve the highest yield of radioactive isotope 177-Lu in a preselected chemical form and a specific activity using the automatic remotely controlled system. One of the main system components is a newly designed hybride irradiation capsule for irradiated sample. The whole system is remotely controlled by the operator using a manipulator. Active and non-acitve tests of Octopus system was completed by successful acceptation tests at the customer site.
