1962- first medical preparations of iodine-131, suphur-35 and phosphorus-32.
1964 – standard solutions, reference sources, iodine-131 labelled preparations: hipurate, rose bengal, fibrinogen.
1968 – sealed sources for gamma – radiography.
1970’s – technetium-99m and indium-113m generators, scintigraphic kits, sodium iodide-131 in capsules, first radioimmunoassays.
1980’s – implementation of ISO standards in sealed sources for gamma – radiography, improvements of technologies with respect to environment protection.
1990’s – modernisation of technetium-99m generators, new generation of radioimmunoassays and immunoradiometric kits, new radiopharmaceuticals: 89SrCl2, 123I / 131I MIBG.
1994 – 1998 implementation of GMP for radiopharmaceutical production.
2001 – implementation of quality management system ISO 9001: 2000 and the WSK (Internal Control System).
2004 – 2005 Rhenium-188 generator.
2005 – production and commercial activity became speciality of new legal organisation: POLATOM
