12 MeV energy, a beam current of 100 µA used to manufacture tracers used for PET molecular imaging
The cyclotron ISOTRACE of 12Mev with a beam current of 80 µA, is part of a technological solution developed and distributed by PMB, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) molecular imaging.
This solution is fully integrated and automated to ensure local production of PET imaging biomarkers (tracers).
These tracers may be labeled with shorter half-life radioisotopes such as oxygen 15 (2 min ), carbon 11 (20 min), gallium 68 (68 min) and fluor18 (110 min) used in preclinical and clinical imaging.
The solution developed by PMB includes a cyclotron ISOTRACE with a dedicated targetry, in conjunction with a microfluidic radiochemistry platform, and other technological innovations to secure reliable production.
It also includes radioprotection and suitable control systems for low radiation
