BWXT Medical Ltd. (BWXT Medical) announced today that it has entered into a new long-term, mutually exclusive agreement to manufacture TheraSphere™ Y-90 Glass Microspheres for Boston Scientific, a leading global medical device company.

BWXT Medical is a subsidiary of BWX Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:BWXT) and a global supplier of medical isotopes and radiopharmaceuticals.

Under the terms of the agreement, BWXT Medical will invest to automate the production process at its Ottawa, Canada facility, and thereby significantly increase capacity and dependability to support a growing global demand for TheraSphere.
