Product Overview

Meeting Tracer Production Challenges 

FASTlab helps you efficiently and economically meet capacity demands for PET tracers. The system allows you to produce FDG, NaF, FMISO, and FLT on the same platform, saving you space and training time. You can also achieve higher yields per batch with FASTlab, with consistently high reproducibility, so you maintain high standards for accuracy. And when your needs change, FASTlab is designed to accommodate new tracers as they’re developed so you can save money by continuing to use the same platform.

Benefits

Precise, Controlled Tracer Production

FASTlab allows you to maintain high standards for PET tracer production.  FASTlab helps you in three critical areas of production:

Volume:

  • Produce FDG phosphate and citrate formulation, NaF, FMISO, and FLT on the same FASTlab multi-tracer platform
  • Shorter synthesis time results in more doses per run
  • Increased daily production capacity

Accuracy:

  • High typical uncorrected yield
  • High reproducibility due to precise reagent delivery  

Compliance:

  • Designed to meet latest regulatory standards
  • Maintain compliance with regulatory support documentation
  • Cassettes manufactured with precise quantities
  • Reduce regulatory paperwork  

Flexibility:

  • Accommodates new tracers as they are developed

Customer testimonials

1. Customer testimonial

“I would recommend the upgrade from GE TRACERlab* MX to FASTlab. Due to several technical, cassette-based, and software program issues with the older unit, I decided to move from TRACERlab MX to FASTlab for all our FDG synthesis. To my pleasant surprise, other than solving all the technical, cassette, and PC-based problems, the FDG yield and reliability of production had improved greatly. The move to the FASTlab for the production of FDG has reduced the need for redoing the synthesis due to technical problems or cassette reliability issues by several folds, with no need for a redundant second FDG module.”

2. Customer testimonial

“I think the FASTlab cassette based system which requires minimal user input is a huge benefit for GMP. The cassette is ready to install, with only one COA (Certificate of Analysis) needed for all components. Other modules often require user input to reassemble and verify a cassette is in working order, or install reagents.” 

Sally Schwarz, Research Associate Professor, Director of Clinical PET Radiopharmaceutical Production, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University, USA.
