Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facility


Facility Description

A medical cyclotron (Ebco 19 MeV Dual Beam Cyclotron) is available for production of radiotracers and radiochemistry equipment is available for ligand synthesis. The cyclotron produces various positron-emitting radiolabeled pharmaceutical drugs that are designed and engineered to complement clinical molecular targets. The preparation of these unique drugs requires a source of radionuclide (such as 11C or 18F) and the tools for subsequent synthesis of the drug incorporating the radionuclide. The cyclotron produces 19.2 MeV protons and 9.5 MeV deuterons in two separate beam lines.
