Horizontal Dual Mini hotcells
Radiation Shielding Inc. custom-built horizontal dual mini-hotcells
Synthra RNplus Nucleophilic F-18 Synthesizer
A flexible and completely automated radiosynthesis system for routine production of wide variety of [F-18]-labeled compounds by nucleophilic substitution reactions. This synthesis box features the following: 15 small (1-3 mL) and large (10-15 mL) volume glass reagent vials with dead-volume-free connections, 2 closed reaction vessels with integrated cooling and heating zones (0-250°C), three with cooling capabilities (-180°C to 300°C), built-in preparative radio/UV-HPLC system (40 mL max flow), automatic pneumatic injection valve with 1 to 2 mL sample loop, 5 shielded radiation detectors for in-process monitoring, [O-18] water recovery capability, chemically inert valves with small dead volume (35 μL), chemically inert vacuum pump with liquid cooling trap (LN or acetone-dry ice), automated cleaning, electronic control and data collection system, and simple user-defined radiosynthesis SOPs.
High Performance Liquid Chromatograph
HPLC Dionex UltiMate 3000 with flow-through variable wavelength UV-Vis detector and radioactivity detector (scintillation detector system with 1 cm3 CsI(Tl) crystal, Si PIN photo-diode, and preamp).
GC Agilent 6850 with flame ionization detector (FID), autoinjector and Chemstation PC bundle.
Dose calibrator Capintec CRC 25R
Multichannel analyzer AccuSync SpectraAnalyzer for determination of radionuclidic purity.
Laminar Flow Cabinet
Baker Biosafety Cabinet SterilGard III to provide Class 100 environment
Endosafe PTS Portable LAL Testing System for endotoxin assay (pyrogenicity testing)
