CHICAGO, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Positron Corporation (OTCBB:POSC) announces it has entered into a multi-year radioisotope supply agreement with iThemba LABS of Cape Town, South Africa.  The supply agreement contracts the procurement of raw material, strontium-82 (Sr-82) from iThemba LABS for further production of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) at Positron's radioisotope production facility in Lubbock, TX.  In September 2013, Positron will receive relevant volumes of strontium-82 for qualification and will commence with commercial availability beginning in February 2014. This additional supply will enhance the industry's strontium-82 supply and increase the availability of radiopharmaceuticals to the end user.

The iThemba LABS facility provides basic and applied research using particle beams, particle radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer and the supply of accelerator-produced radioactive isotopes for nuclear medicine and research.
