Redlen Technologies Inc., headquartered in Saanichton, BC, Canada, is a manufacturer of high resolution Cadmium Zinc Telluride
semiconductor radiation sensors and radiation detection modules which are enabling a new generation of high performance detection and imaging equipment including Nuclear Imaging, CT Scanning, Baggage Scanning and Dirty Bomb Detection.
General Electrica[euro](tm)s (NYSE:GE) healthcare arm, GE Healthcare, on Monday said it had wrapped up the purchase of Orbotech Medical Solutions (OMS), a maker of cadmium zinc telluride
(CZT) detectors for nuclear imaging and a unit of Israeli Orbotech (NASDAQ:ORBK).
The fan-beam design of PRODIGY uses a state-of-the-art cadmium zinc telluride
detector that allows rapid scanning at 10X lower dose for these applications.
Kromek's cadmium zinc telluride
(CZT) detectors are capable of converting x-ray or gamma photons into electrons and holes.
Cadmium Zinc Telluride
(CdZnTe) crystals are of great interest due to the material's attractive properties and high stopping power for room-temperature X-rays and high energy gamma radiation detection applications such as in medical, industrial and astrophysical fields.
A Durham University spin-out, Kromek is a leading developer of high performance radiation detection products based on cadmium zinc telluride
- or CZT - and works across three main markets.
Kromek, which makes cadmium zinc telluride
(CdZT) which has been integrated into products such as airport scanners, and PolyPhotonix, which has developed a sleep mask to treat diabetic retinopathy.
OMS, maker of cadmium zinc telluride
(CZT) detectors for nuclear imaging, is a subsidiary of Israeli Orbotech (NASDAQ:ORBK).
Provider of transformational medical technologies and services GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), has entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of Orbotech Medical Solutions Ltd (OMS), a manufacturer of cadmium zinc telluride
(CZT) detectors used in GE Healthcare's Alcyone nuclear medicine technology.
A lightweight system that operates at ambient temperatures, the GammaTracker relies on a benchtop pixelated cadmium zinc telluride
(CZT) system called Polaris.
That included a PS44m, seven-year deal announced in January to supply its Cadmium Zinc Telluride
(CZT) detectors and associated advanced electronics in medical imaging systems.
