NEW Best Model B35adp Alpha/Deuteron/Proton Cyclotron

NEW Best Model B35adp Alpha/Deuteron/Proton Cyclotron

Best Cyclotron Systems, a TeamBest Global Company, Introduces B35adp Alpha/Deuteron/Proton Cyclotron for Medical Radioisotope Production & Other Applications

BEIJING, CHINA, June 16, 2021 / — Over the last several years, Best Cyclotron Systems and Best ABT Molecular Imaging of the TeamBest Global Group of Companies (TBG), have developed a series of cyclotrons for medical, industrial and research applications. Recently, TBG has developed a 35 MeV Alpha, Deuteron and Proton Cyclotron for production of medical isotopes and other applications. This versatile cyclotron is a compact unit occupying a relatively small footprint, as well as easy to operate and maintain. It still accomplishes an important role as a novel cyclotron system for production of large quantities of medical isotopes and generation of deuteron and alpha particles.

This cyclotron produces a variety of proton-induced medical radioisotopes that are widely used in diagnostic and therapeutic investigations and procedures. In addition, this unit can generate radionuclides through the (d,n), (d,p) and (alpha, xn) reactions. For example, Lutecium-166 and Astatine-211 are available using the B35adp.

Some of the characteristics of B35adp are given below:
– Proton Particle Beam: 30 MeV Energy, 500 µA Beam Current
– Deuteron Particle Beam: 15 MeV Energy, 250 µA Beam Current
– Alpha Particle Beam: 35 MeV Energy, 100 µA Beam Current

The alpha beam is designed with a higher energy so that encapsulated targets may be used for Astatine-211 production — thus, isolating the alpha-emitting radioisotope while maximizing the production yield.

The B35adp accesses the family of production targets that TeamBest Global offers for the B35 cyclotron. Production sequences are automatic and coordinated with the synthesis protocols.

Maintenance and service monitoring are performed from the TBG Cyclotron Team on a regular basis.

TBG will customize this cyclotron to suit medical/industrial/research application needs and requirements.

TeamBest Global (TBG) Companies and Best Cure Foundation (BCF) are planning to establish hundreds of cyclotrons and other systems worldwide for Radioisotope Production, Research, Green Energy, etc., and operate them for more efficient Medical Diagnosis/Treatment/Research and Green Energy Developments.

irth Solutions and UTTO Announce Partnership to Create the Most Secure and Accurate Locate Process Available

irth Solutions partnership with UTTO

irth Solutions partners with UTTO to create the most secure and accurate locate process available for the underground utility industry.     

For the Underground Utility Industry     

Organizations with this insight can train best-practice locate skills, improve field operations and ultimately achieve absolute damage avoidance to critical infrastructure.”

— Trent Peugh, President and CRO

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, June 16, 2021 / —  irth Solutions, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions that improve the resiliency of critical infrastructure, including its flagship 811 ticket management system, and UTTO, an innovator that is redefining locate best practices for 811 workforces, today announced a unique partnership. This partnership gives organizations the highest level of locate and mark accuracy. This visibility into the locate process helps improve locate and marking of underground utilities. Improvements in an organization’s locate services enhance resiliency, reliability and safety of utilities, oil/gas, telecommunications and construction operations.     
UTTO Inc., whose company name is derived from a Greek term for under/beneath and Italian for help, offers technology specifically for the underground utility industry to improve the quality of locate and marks as well as the education and training of their damage prevention workforce. Proper data analysis and recording from the field and training of 811 technicians are crucial for avoiding asset damage. This gives organizations valuable insights to help them improve their overall damage prevention program and avoid costly damages.
“Our partnership with irth Solutions creates an industry first that enables 811 ticket management systems for utilities to protect underground assets and preserve safety using our Locate Assurance® data-driven model,” said Annie Burns, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Alliances for UTTO.    
The partnership with UTTO helps utilities understand how individual technicians are performing and the risks associated with each locate, reducing damages of critical infrastructure due to poor training or individual lone wolf techniques and processes. Organizations who use this technology can also leverage Locate Assurance to motivate and incentivize the entire field workforce. This visibility helps drive change, improves safety, and reduces damage and potential damages. Here’s how UTTO technology works:   

• Locate technicians are trained using UTTO’s Virtual Locate Training Simulator.
• The “in-office” simulator can illustrate and teach solutions to locate scenarios in a “safe to fail” environment, tricky scenarios that a line locator encounters daily and can be land mines to avoid.
• You can be assured that trained and certified technicians go out in the field to locate and mark underground assets with scientific performance assessments.
• In the real world, Locate Assurance technology inside the locate device enables the same metrics as trained in the Simulator to be viewed every day, giving supervisors and auditors visibility into their field operations that never existed.
• Before closing an 811 ticket and leaving the site, the performance score will be presented to the field technician and allow them to relocate if company standards are not met, ensuring company best practices are followed and used at every locate.

Prior to UTTO’s technology, there was no way to capture this valuable locate data. The data:  

• Improves the precision and accuracy of locate and mark operations.
• If used for surveying and mapping, it qualifies the GPS points being captured.   
• Helps organizations optimize field resources with real-time field-visit analytics to understand who is deployed where.   
• Identifies technician training gaps that can be closed by using UTTO’s Virtual Locate Training Simulator.   
UTTO technology combined with irth Solution’s UtiliSphere provides the most powerful, efficient 811 ticket management platform to help companies improve safety, comply with regulations and efficiently protect assets, workers and service. When a locator tech performs a locate with a UTTO-approved device, data is captured and the locate is scored and recorded in the UtiliSphere platform.
“Our partnership with UTTO provides amazing data that had never been accessed. Organizations with this insight can train best-practice locate skills, improve field operations and ultimately achieve absolute damage avoidance to critical infrastructure,” said Trent Peugh, President and CRO of irth Solutions. “Using a UTTO-compliant device is going to be an industry best practice to ensure your facilities are properly located and marked and your technicians are adequately trained. When used with our UtiliSphere platform, your damage prevention program is managed in one robust system that will protect assets, improve safety, and save time and money.”

The CRM and Selling System Interrupter

Sales Control Plan Management take Sales Management and Training to a Whole New Level

Forecasting and sales probability are fictional concepts and metrics in CRM. It is time to take selling out of the dark ages.”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 16, 2021 / — Many sales managers and sales directors are searching for ways to make the best of every opportunity in their pipeline. Most often this begins with painful sales meetings where sales reps share stories to explain the probability of a closed sale based on their intuition of the overall engagement between themselves and their customer. Many managers have attempted to implement additional metrics and accountability to provide transparency to a pipeline that often results in opportunities going cold due to inactivity, with little result. Sales training is routinely general and not focused as most training companies do not know how to evaluate for specific needs. This is the current reactive procedure of managing personalities instead of process that most, if not all, sales managers are experiencing.

With the launch of Sales Control Plan Management, we can say with confidence that this type of process failure is over. Your company will benefit from complete pipeline transparency with Sales Pulse. Sales Pulse will provide the sales representative and manager with trend lines from prospecting to close for every opportunity in your pipeline. When opportunities lose engagement, Sales Pulse will trigger an alert prompting pre-emptive action from Sales Defense which will determine the corrective based on each customer’s engagement, sales stage, and activity history.

Accurate sales training metrics will be established after baseline implementation. Collection of baseline performance determines the need for sales training, where the sales representative is struggling based on performance reports, not management instincts. Training notifications are issued immediately to the sales representative and the manager informing them of the training alert and books the sales rep into training on Sales Control Plan Management’s training system. Training system will consist of the client’s modified sales manual which is reflective of the sales waste assessments available on Sales Control Plan Management.

We are also in the process of making Sales Control Plan Management a white label program. This program will be for sales trainers who are looking to offer a series of sales resources that benefit every company that is currently selling over longer sales cycles with multiple touchpoints. Sales Control Plan Licensing will be made available August 2021.
