The ISAC (Isotope Separator and Accelerator) Radioactive Beams laboratory has been in operation for about 4 years. An upgrade in the RB upper energy and mass range will be operational in 2 years and funding for a further upgrade in available number of RB will be submitted this year. There are a number of major experimental facilities now available with physics results produced. A key new facility in the area of nuclear astrophysics, the DRAGON (Detector of Recoils And Gammas Of Nuclear reactions) facility, has finished its first major study, namely a direct measurement for the first time of the 21Na(p,γ)22 Mg reaction, a reaction believed to play a key role in the production of 22 Na during novae explosions. This report will provide a review of the experimental facilities now available at ISAC, along with details of this first published result from the DRAGON facility.
