PET LIMS on show at SNM meeting
9 June 2009
Visitors to the Society of Nuclear Medicine's Annual Meeting (Toronto, Canada 13th - 17th June) should look out for demonstrations of PETra, the new Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for PET facilities from LabLogic Systems (Stand 1532).
PETra has been designed to interface with all PET equipment - cyclotron, synthesis instruments, dose calibrator, balances, pH meter, etc - and produces a single batch report, saving time and reducing error in the production of 18FDG and other PET radiopharmaceuticals.
It supersedes laborious and potentially inaccurate manual recording of essential information for all aspects of the process, from production set up and material preparation through each stage of synthesis to final release of the product.
PETra uses the familiar Windows Explorer interface for rapid training and deployment. It can also be used alongside Windows Mobile PDAs to make pre-production checks more efficient.
