The TheraSphere’s journey begins with an empty, glass blown ampoule in Missouri. This is where the empty ampoule is then fillled with non-radioactive microspheres containing yttrium 89. Once filled, the product is then expertly sealed and shipped to its next destination – Ontario, Canada.

Upon arrival in Ontario, the non-radioactive ampoule is inspected and held in inventory awaiting direction for its next stop. From here, the non-radioactive ampoule will travel to one of four reactor sites around the world – Canada, USA, Australia or South Africa.

Next, the ampoule filled with yttrium 89 is delicately placed into the nuclear reactor to be transformed into radioactive Y90, better known as TheraSphere®. Following that, the product is then extracted from the reactor and sent back to Ontario.
