radionuclides from Russia?
They read the literature; really, they can read......
I've had 5 different groups of Russians in my office
claiming that they each had exclusive Gov't control on
exporting Ac-225 - they all want to sell it at the DOE
price w/o any proof that they actually have any and
that it's any good or pure as well.
I deal with Isonics now and they deal with the
Russians and that works for me - I'm tired of Russian
Mafia front men in my office trying to sell me
