[11C]Methionine

Commercially available: ready to use consumables and optimized method

Application

[11C]Methionine is used for PET imaging in oncology and in particular for brain lesions showing low FDG uptake.

Configuration

[11C]Methionine can be produced on the AllinOne automated synthesizer without HPLC. This 11C process automated on a disposable device from target outlet to final product vial involves a reagent kit and a cassette. The process runs on AllinOne model AIO18 (and any higher model).

Advantages

  • 11C chemistry made simple
  • Whole process on one box
  • No lab bench preparation required
  • Disposable cassette, no cleaning
     

Performances

Cassette and reagents set up time < 1 min
Synthesis time 15 min
Typical production yield 20 ± 5% decay un-corrected
Radiochemical purity ≥ 98%
