Addenbrooke's chooses LabLogic for PET metabolite support
28 July 2009
The Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering at Addenbroke's Hospital in Cambridge, UK has chosen LabLogic Systems to supply all the equipment needed to support its new metabolite analysis system for early-phase PET studies.
Included are a Posi RAM radio-HPLC detector, Agilent 1200SL HPLC system and Triathler well counter, all sourced by LabLogic and controlled by the company's Laura software.
"LabLogic's capability stood out among the other potential suppliers because they were able to offer a comprehensive service bringing together all the key components we needed," said Professor Peter Jarritt, the hospital's clinical director of medical physics and clinical engineering.
"As well as the hardware and software, they provided the expertise in qualification and validation for a GLP environment and coordinated all aspects of the project - installation, training and follow-up."
The Posi RAM radio-HPLC detector has been developed specifically for the low-level Beta+-counting necessary for studying the metabolism of novel PET radio-pharmaceuticals. It identifies PET metabolites in the fastest possible time and with inherently low backgrounds; only coincidences are recorded.
