Microfluidic Tracer production

Dose-on-demand radiotracer production, whereby a single dose is generated using a compact synthesis unit with radioisotope from a mini-cyclotron or external supply is an interesting prospect for widening the availabilty of radiotracers. We aim to produce modules for lab-on-a-chip device design that can be used for isotope processing, synthesis and some routine quality control tests on a microfluidic scale.
