Telix Seneffe Production Facility: Progress Update
Melbourne (Australia) and Seneffe (Belgium) – 30 July 2021. Telix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: TLX, ‘Telix’, the ‘Company’) today announces that it has received authorisation from the Belgian Agence Fédérale de Contrôle Nucléaire (AFCN) to decommission the first of two cyclotrons housed at the Company’s licensed radiopharmaceutical production facility in Seneffe, Belgium. The authorisation means that the AFCN has accepted Telix’s decommissioning dossier, submitted with the support of SCK-CEN (the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre), and is satisfied that safety and operational requirements will be met.
Telix Seneffe General Manager, Sébastien Linard stated, “This authorisation represents a significant milestone for Telix as it enables the build-out of a state-of-the art radiopharmaceutical production facility that will ultimately serve as Telix's primary EU manufacturing site. This outcome is also positive for the Wallonia region as Telix's production footprint will create local employment and partnership opportunities, further contributing to Belgium's impressive radiopharmaceutical ecosystem. We would like to thank our collaborator SCK-CEN and our radioprotection advisor Be.Sure ASBL for their support in developing the dossier for AFCN submission.”
About Telix’s Seneffe (Belgium) Facility
Telix’s nuclear facility in Seneffe, Belgium, was acquired in April 20201 , allowing the Company to set up a broad radiopharmaceutical production facility with significant operational flexibility. This vertically integrated approach to radioisotope and finished radiopharmaceutical production has the ability to meet the Company’s commercial production needs for its entire product portfolio in Europe, both increasing Telix’s independence and reducing exposure to interruptions in radioisotope supply.
