The PET Centre in Brno has provided encouraging feedback on LabLogic's Scan-RAM radio TLC scanner
The PET Centre in Brno has given good feedback on LabLogic's Scan-RAM radio TLC scanner for PET and SPECT.
Part of the Czech Republic's Nuclear Research Institute Rez, the Centre purchased the Scan-RAM from LabLogic representative ENVINET as a replacement for a TLC scanner supplied ten years ago by a rival manufacturer.
'We needed to determine the critical quality parameters of the radiopharmaceuticals we manufacture, and we were not satisfied with the scanner we had because of its unreliability and frequent breakdowns,' said Alena Novotnandaacute who is responsible for the centre's quality control of radiopharmaceuticals.
'With the Scan-RAM, on the other hand, we can be confident of the radiochemical purity of the 18F-labelled radiopharmaceuticals we routinely produced, and in exercising quality control over products we develop in the future.' She added that LabLogic's Laura software is user-friendly and allowed a wide range of settings to be offered.
