The aging population is on the rise all over the world and the biohealth industry is receiving a lot of interest these days. Development of new medicine is considered to be very important and is known as the future of the biohealth industry. The radioactive isotope labeled compounds are used to track and evaluate the effects of new drugs inside the body, and it's known as the core technology in the development of new drugs.
On this week's #Korea 4.0, we visit Curachem, a company that is equipped with the technology to make radioactive isotope labeled compounds. Curachem is dominating the Japanese market and is branching out overseas to the United States and Europe. We take a closer look at this company and visit its lab to learn more about the radioactive isotope labeled compounds and see the synthetic process.
