[18F]FAZA

Commercially available: ready to use consumables and optimized method

Application

FAZA is known to differentiate hypoxic and non-hypoxic tissues and allows imaging hypoxia in tumours. This is of particular interest for radiation therapy planning as Hypoxic tumour cells are known to be 2-3 times more resistant to radiation therapy than tumours cells with normal oxygenation levels.

Configuration

FAZA can be prepared on an AllinOne automated synthesizer. The AIO24 model with radio-HPLC (or any higher model) is suitable for FAZA process. 

The process uses a cassette and a reagent kit.

Advantages

  • State-of-the-art yield
  • No lab bench preparation
  • Ready for use consumables
  • Reduced operator exposure

Performances

Cassette and reagents set up time < 1 min
Synthesis time 45 min
Typical production yield 30 ± 4% decay un-corrected
Radiochemical purity ≥ 98
