[18F]FDG Quad

Availability: Current 2017

Application

[18F]FDG is used in PET for diagnosing, staging and monitoring treatment of cancers, particularly in Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, melanoma and lung cancer.

Configuration

This process can operate on AllinOne 18 or higher model. The FDG Quad process allows the preparation of 4 consecutive productions of FDG on the AllinOne automated synthesizer using only one cassette and one reagent kit.

 

Advantages

  • Cost effective: load once for 4 runs
  • 4 back to back runs in one single hot cell
  • Reduces user’s radiation exposure
  • Outstanding yields at all 4 runs
  • Plug and play consumables; all accessories included; no laboratory bench preparation

Performances

Cassette and reagents set up time  1 min
Synthesis time 21 min
Typical production yield 70 ± 3% decay un-corrected
Radiochemical purity ≥ 98%

Denominations

Fludeoxyglucose (18F) or fludeoxyglucose F 18 (USAN and USP), also commonly called fluorodeoxyglucose and abbreviated [18F]FDG, 18F-FDG or FDG
