FASTlab Multi-Tracer

TRACERcenter™ offers the automated FASTlab™ PETtracer production platform, a safe and easy-to-use cassette-based, plug-and-play chemistry synthesizer system.

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.

The FASTlab Multi-Tracer delivers high/consistent yield, facilitates the GMP and regulatory compliance and is upgradeable to FASTlab Developer.

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.” 

S. Somanesan, Senior Principal Radiation Physicist, Dept of Nuclear Medicine & PET Operations & QA Manager, Cyclotron Facility PTPL Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.

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.

You told us …

I want to reduce my PET tracers production costs

As the responsible person of a PET tracers production site, you want to control and optimize your operational costs while getting the maximum out of your investment.

FASTlab can help you to achieve this:

With high yield by design, you can

  • produce more FDG doses per batch
  • reduce the number of production runs
  • reduce maintenance costs and downtime for both your synthesizer and cyclotron

With cassettes preloaded with reagents, you can

  • reduce incoming quality control and sourcing costs
  • reduce human error and labor costs
  • reduce paperwork

I want to confidently produce and deliver doses

FASTlab is the next generation synthesizer that further helps to improve reliability, reproducibility and smooth operations.

FASTlab reliability and Plug and Play cassettes help you to:

  • increase batch success rate
  • save time
  • setup back to back synthesis that is as easy as swapping out the used cassette for a new one

I want to facilitate my quality, regulatory, and GMP compliance

FASTlab cassettes are manufactured in a controlled environment, with reagents produced under cGMP standards with precise quantities and formulations.

With the integration of the reagents and accessories into single, validated cassettes, you’re able to effortlessly meet the most stringent quality-control standards across production facilities. They are accompanied by one consolidated Certificate of Analysis to streamline your quality control and reduce your paperwork.

FASTlab helps you to meet the latest regulatory standards: the Drug Master Files and other regulatory support documentation are available for the FASTlab system, the cassettes, and the synthesis processes.

FASTlab system comes with CE marking, UL/CSA certificates, and GAMP validation certifications and is produced under IS013485.

I want to be prepared for the future of PET tracers

FASTlab…your investment in the future  

With FASTlab Multi-Tracer, you can produce PET tracers using GE validated cassettes like FDG citrate & phosphate, NaF, FMISO and FLT.
Major academic centres started to develop their own research agents using the open FASTlab Developer platform, featuring easy development and sharing of new tracers.

In addition, GE Healthcare is working with external partners to develop non-proprietary tracers on the FASTlab Developer platform.
GE Healthcare has used the FASTlab platform in its pivotal clinical studies to support marketing applications with regulators in the US and EU for its lead investigational amyloid PET tracer.

In the future, we expect there to be multiple non-proprietary and proprietary agents for neurodegenerative disease and other diseases available for FASTlab.

For a limited time, you can take advantage of the special “Evolution” program* and replace your TRACERlab MX or TRACERlab FX FDG with a FASTlab Multi-Tracer system
