an AREVA Med company) announced today the introduction of four new products that will expand PET imaging applications with copper-64
and gallium-68 using NOTA-based chelating platforms.
28), (29) As part of these studies, we used an absorption test for copper-64
(a simple copper salt) and showed that a minimum of 15% of ingested copper-64
bypasses the liver and adds immediately to the free copper pool of the blood.
New chelates will be assessed with a variety of MDS Nordion radioisotopes including: yttrium-90, lutetium-177, indium-111 and copper-64
is a radioactive nuclide of copper which has unique decay properties making it useful in nuclear medicine for both imaging and therapy.
Last month, the National Cancer Institute issued Welch a grant that will subsidize his team's making of copper-64
for itself and other medical researchers around the country.
MDS Nordion today announced the commercial availability of copper-64
Plus, all isotopes produced by the B14 including: Carbon-11, Nitrogen-13, Oxygen-15, Fluorine-18 (aqueous & gas), Copper-64
, Iodine-124, Gallium-67, Technetium-99m and Palladium-103
The Trace facility produces Copper-64
, Copper- 67, Indium-111, Iodine-123 and Thallium-201 used in molecular imaging and nuclear medicine.
The energy of the B14 allows the generation of other PET agents such as Copper-64
