IRE Elit, an IRE subsidiary, produces several radiopharmaceutical derivatives used in the treatment of certain cancers and palliative care. IRE Elit, in addition to its production activities, contributes to the protection of the environment via its services for measurement of radioactivity in various samples, the radiological characterisation of waste and contaminated elements, consultancy and technical assistance projects in the radiological and nuclear fields, and the dismantling of sealed radioactive sources.
