CNSI, Building 114

Equipped for production of PET tracers, i.e., molecules labeled with radioisotopes for positron emission tomography (PET). Available services include: routine production of a continually-growing list of established tracers, development/optimization of automated synthesis protocols, and assistance with transitioning to clinical production, and the center will expand to include services for the development of novel tracers. The center is focused primarily on molecules labeled with fluorine-18, but is also experienced with positron-emitting radiometals. Facilities suitable for the development, characterization, and validation of new radiochemistry technologies are also available, and the center integrates these technologies into the tracer development and production process. The Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Technology Center is part of the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging.
