Lablogic has revealed that Imperial College's Hammersmith Hospital Campus in London is utilising its Flow-RAM gamma radio HPLC detector for quality checks of radio-pharmaceuticals.
'The Flow-RAM hardware is an ergonomic improvement on the setup we had previously and it integrates seamlessly into Laura 4.1.3, the latest version of Lablogic's radiochromatography software, generating data of comparable quality,' said Dr Graham Smith of the Faculty of Medicine's Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre.
The Hammersmith campus already utilises Lablogic's Gamma-RAM radio-HPLC detector for soft and intermediate gamma emitters.
Flow-RAM is available in different configurations whereby either one or two detectors can be connected to the system at any one time.
The two-detector configuration accepts two detectors - different or the same - that work simultaneously yet independently of one another.
This creates a 'two-in-one' instrument, offering flexibility and saving space and money.
The user is able to lock down features such as the high-voltage upper- and lower-level discriminators to prevent unauthorised adjustments to specified radionuclide operating parameters, ensuring consistent GLP/GMP compliance.
Power supply, instrument control and data collection are enabled via a single USB connection.
In addition, for those wanting to use the detector with their existing chromatography system, the Flow-RAM offers standalone control through a pocket digital assistant over a Bluetooth wireless link.
