TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian energy authorities have closed a nuclear reactor that produces a third of the world's medical isotopes after a small leak and warned that there could be a shortage of isotopes by as early as Saturday.
Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd said it shut down the 50-year-old reactor at Chalk River, Ontario, late last week after it discovered a small leak of heavy water, used as part of the nuclear reaction process.
It expects the reactor to remain out of operation for more than a month.
Meantime, major isotope producing countries and companies are working co-operatively to address the issue of a possible supply shortage, the Canadian government said.

I don't think ATS would host full articles due to copyright reasons. I've been archiving as many articles a day that I can since April 27th on a blog of mine. I've been noticing lots of stories vanishing already the past 2 weeks so I'm glad I have backup.
