TRACERcenter Solutions

Through its unique ability to make visible what could normally be invisible, PET enables the search for a deeper truth. We call this a true discovery and it’s something we want every patient to have access to because it can change their life for the better.

Accomplishing this in PET goes beyond ensuring more providers have access to imaging technology. Because of the short half-lives of PET tracers, it requires a thoughtful approach to the entire process, from the moment a radioisotope is generated, to the moment a tracer gets delivered to a patient. When each step is carefully coordinated and supported, PET becomes more cost-effective and efficient. This makes it easier for providers to offer PET imaging as one of their capabilities.

It all starts with PET tracer production. This is why, for the past 30 years, we have sought to simplify the entire process of implementing and operating these sophisticated production facilities. TRACERcenter™ is the result of this effort.

 

TRACERcenter brings all of the different silos of technology, service and equipment that make up a tracer production facility together in one comprehensive solution. You can choose a pre-configured service and equipment package, like our entry-level VIP solution, or we can help you design a custom package to meet your specific needs. No matter what your tracer production needs are, TRACERcenter is the only turnkey PET solution in the industry.

By bringing everything together under one solution, our hope is to make the advantages of PET imaging available to as many healthcare providers as possible and as a result, to as many patients as possible.

In order for PET to grow, it needs to be able to extend into emerging markets that don’t have access to a larger network of tracer distribution. Often times, providers in these markets don’t have the financial resources or the operational expertise to run a sophisticated production center.

We developed TRACERcenter VIP to provide a simple, cost-effective solution for in-house tracer production. This pre-configured, multi-vendor package contains everything you need for GMP-compliant production of FDG, from equipment to documentation to services.

Each piece of equipment in this all-inclusive package was selected for its small footprint and usability. It features our most user-friendly cyclotron, GENtrace™, and our latest generation, cassette-based synthesizer, FASTlab™ 2. It also features the TRYGG™ integrated hot cell and the KLAR™ dispenser. These two technologies save even more space by combining the synthesis and dispensing process in one hot cell.

With TRACERcenter VIP, every step of tracer production and quality control can be completed by your nuclear medicine technicians. This further reduces operation costs by eliminating the need to hire a radiochemist or a cyclotron technician.

Cyclotrons and chemistry systems are important parts of a tracer production facility, but you also need hot cells, fume hoods, shielding, lead containers and dispensing systems. Achieving reliable production of quality tracers requires each of these components to work seamlessly together.

In addition to our own portfolio of cyclotrons and chemistry systems, TRACERcenter includes a carefully selected portfolio of production technologies from third-party vendors. There are many different equipment vendors in the market, which is why we take it upon ourselves to find the best of the best. All of our third-party equipment packages are selected to complement our own tracer production equipment and services. They are also fully validated to be GMP and regulatory compliance ready.

We can provide you with a pre-configured equipment package or tailor a package to meet your specific needs. Either way, TRACERcenter is your single-source solution for GMP-ready equipment.

Your PET tracer production program doesn’t end when your facility is built and all of the equipment is installed. It’s just beginning. That’s why we have gone to great lengths to provide you with a comprehensive service solution that can provide you with the support you need throughout the life of your program.

Our service solutions include designing and validating a facility that meets your needs and training your staff on how to operate the equipment according to GMP guidelines. Our experts can come directly to your facility to train you on your own equipment, or you can come to our TRACERcenter Academy for hands-on training on our latest portfolio of equipment. In addition, our regional experts can help you tailor your Quality Management Systems and Quality Documentation to ensure your project meets stringent local and regional pharmacopeia requirements.

Once your PET production program is up and running, it’s important to keep it running. We have the largest footprint of service personnel in the industry. Our team of highly trained field engineers have access to instant remote diagnostics and are backed by a worldwide service infrastructure for replacement parts. This allows us to provide the fast, local support you need for both our own and third-party equipment. Lastly, we further protect your investment in our cyclotrons through a continuous upgrade program that makes it easy to keep your cyclotron up to date with the latest advancements.
