Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology (BRIT), the unit of Department of Atomic Energy, is focussed on bringing the benefits of the use of radioisotope applications and radiation technology across industry, healthcare, research and agricultural sectors of the society.
Harnessing the spin-offs from the mainstream programmes of DAE, such as R&D programmes at BARC and Nuclear Power plants for generating electricity by NPCIL, BRIT has independently created a separate visible area of contribution to the society. The applications of radiation and radioisotopes in the healthcare, industry, agriculture and research has proved to be one of the most wide-spread peaceful uses of the nuclear sciences besides the nuclear power production.
Realizing the importance of the use of the radioisotopes for societal benefits and national development, the Department of Atomic Energy has, over the years, built up adequate infrastructure facilities for the production and applications of radioisotopes which is in the form of Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology (BRIT). BRIT continues its endeavour towards providing its best services to mankind through meeting the demands of the users, be it in the fields of nuclear medicine, healthcare or towards advanced technologies such as engineering and radiation technology equipments for medical as well as industrial uses, radiation processing services, isotope applications or radioanalytical services.
Radiopharmaceuticals, RIA laboratories, Labelled Compounds, Radiation processing Plant, Radiation Equipment Production Facility, Column Generator Plant, Radioanalytical Laboratory, Isotope Application Services and Electron Beam facility are located at BRIT/BARC Vashi Complex in Navi Mumbai.
Marketing & Services, Sealed Sources & Logistics, ISOMED and Medical Cyclotron Facility are located at different units in Mumbai. Besides, BRIT has six regional centres located at Bengaluru, Delhi, Dibrugarh, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Kota.
