June 2 (Reuters) - U.S. based Sterigenics International boosted its takeover bid for Canadian medical isotope producer Nordion Inc to $805 million, Ottawa-based Nordion said on Monday, after the previous offer failed to attract enough shareholder support.

Sterigenics has agreed to pay $13 in cash per Nordion share, up from its previous offer of $12.25. (Reporting by Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
