Contribution to the IRPA14 Montreal Fund

The Montreal Fund was created in 1995 by the Canadian Radiation Protection Association with the  proceeds of the IRPA8 International Congress held in Montreal, Canada, in 1992, to enhance radiation protection worldwide by supporting attendance of young scientists at IRPA Congresses.
The Montreal Fund is supported by contributions from Associate Societies and other stakeholders.
BNMS contributes to this fund which enables participation at congresses of students and young professionals preferably from developing countries and countries that do not have IRPA Associate Societies. They are normally made directly to individuals or through the Support Committees for International and Regional Congresses.
More information can be found regarding the fund on the IRPA website here

Product update - Stamicis Labels

As a result of  reports from the UK market of product vial labels not being able to withstand the wet boiling procedure required for the reconstitution  of Stamicis (kit of Sestamibi manufactured by CIS bio international, member of IBA  Group of companies )  IBA Molecular have subsequently invested a lot of time and resource investigating a different type of label.


We can now announce with great pleasure, that following a long process of validation by a UK Radiopharmacy all batches of Stamicis are manufactured with a new reinforced label, with effect  from the 23rd of February 2016.

The performance data of this new label , especially its tack  or adhesive performance up to 150°C,  guarantees a total integrity of the  label during wet boiling as well as an ensuring an excellent quality of the pre-printing on the label.


It is hoped that the improvements made to the labels will provide our end user with a totally satisfactory production experience when using Stamicis. This is effective from the following batch number F004HA which is currently being despatched from Alliance Medical Limited.


If you have any questions relating to this or any other products, please feel free to discuss this with your Radiopharmaceutical Marketing Development Managers for further clarification:-
