Our selection of consumable items for the pharmaceutical and radiopharmaceutical industry.
- Stable Isotope 18-O
The most common application of stable isotope Oxygen-18 is used as a precursor in PET (Positron Emission Tomography).
PET is a nuclear medicine imaging technique that produces a three-dimensional image or map of functional processes in the body. The system detects pairs of gamma rays emitted indirectly by a positron-emitting radionuclide (tracer), which is introduced into the body on a biologically active molecule, such as Fluorine-18 [18-F].
Generally, in the radiopharmaceutical industry, enriched water (H218O) is bombarded with hydrogen ions, creating Fluorine-18. Several hundred PET centers that provide invaluable assistance to tens of millions of people every year function now in various countries.
- Stable Isotope 68-Zn
The use of stable isotope Zinc-68 solution is of special interest since it is one of the stable precursors used in PET (Positron Emission Tomography).
Generally, in the radiopharmaceutical industry, Zinc solution is bombarded with hydrogen ions, creating Gallium-68 used for nuclear medicine imaging techniques for diagnostics.
Normally, Gallium-68 is given by eluting 68-Ge/68-Ga generator but they are expensive and deliver limited activity of 68-Ga per elution.
68-Ga-based radiopharmaceuticals can be also produced by irradiating a liquid target containing Zinc-68 based solution and performing a post-irradiation purification from impurities that it’s done by a synthesizer before labeling.
That process has no limit in terms of doses per day and it’s more suitable and less expensive than a 68-Ge/68-Ga generator for a site that has already a cyclotron used for Fluorine-18 production.
- Glass Vials For Small Filling Operation
This kind of pharmaceutical sterile glass vial is particularly well-suited for small filling operations and R&D purposes.
Vials can be ordered with or without aluminum caps & butyl rubber stoppers.
All glass vials, caps (aluminum or plastics), and stoppers are subjected to a rigorous quality control program and all products comply with the EN ISO 8362 standard.
The primary packaging complies with ISO 15378:2017 and fulfills the requirements for the application of ISO 9001:2015.
