The history of POLATOM begins in 1950-ties. In 1957 in the Institute of Nuclear Research was created a new department of isotope distribution, which two years later was transformed into Isotope Distribution Office.

The first success in production came in 1962.

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
