About us

Today Chemotrade looks back onto the history of the company.

Chemotrade was founded in 1992 in Düsseldorf, focusing on the distribution of Radioisotopes and Stable Isotope. Based on the profound market knowledge of its founders and employees, the company quickly developed into a household name within the market for isotopes.

At the beginning, Chemotrade focused on supplying Isotopes made in Russia in bulk, but to strengthen its market position, the company acquired Isocommerz. This new acquisition manifested itself in the companies’ subsidiary - Chemotrade Leipzig.

Isonics Corporation takeover of Chemotrade Düsseldorf in 1998 resulted in the division of Chemotrade Leipzig in 2002.

In 2006, Chemotrade Leipzig and Düsseldorf merged again allowing the company to maintain its expertise and making it a significant player in the market of Isotopes for more than 25 years.

The development of our radioactive isotopes business has been very positive and therefore has required our entire attention. Consequently in 2010 we decided to manage all business activities from Düsseldorf & stopped the distribution of “light isotopes” (except 15-N) resulting in the closure of our Leipzig offices.

Since 2013 we belong to Eckert & Ziegler* Group, with around 800 employees one of the world’s largest providers of isotope-related components for radiotherapy and nuclear medicine.
