Copper is an essential metal that can be found in a wide variety of industrial and consumer products. It is used in electrical conductors and for pipes in buildings and water systems. It also has many other important uses, such as in the manufacture of jewelry and coins.

One of the interesting things about copper is that it occurs in two different forms, known as isotopes. Each form has the same number of protons but differs in the number of neutrons and electrons. This difference is what gives the isotopes their unique characteristics and properties.

Isotopes are also very useful in many applications, including gamma photography, measuring systems and precision instruments, gas and smoke detection systems, mineral analyzes, and processes. The use of stable isotopes can lead to more accurate and reliable results. In addition, they help to protect the environment and our health.

Cu-65 is a non-radioactive and stable isotope of Copper. It is used for producing the medical radioisotope Zn-62 and for generating Cu-64, which is widely used in cancer diagnosis and treatment. It can also be used for studies of copper metabolism and requirements, and gastrointestinal diseases.

American Elements produces over 250 stable metallic isotopes for biological and biomedical labeling, as target materials, and for other applications. All material is produced to standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec; ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade and USP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards.
