Radio Scanner / Detector Does Double Duty for US Pharma
Product News Apr 13, 2011
A US drug discovery company has found a single instrument that meets all its requirements for radio TLC scanning and radio HPLC detection - the dual-system Scan-RAM 1B from LabLogic Systems.
The company uses its configuration of Scan/Flow-RAM/Agilent for QC purposes, detecting mainly F-18 and I-111 in its small animal imaging laboratory, which has extensive facilities for SPECT/CT, PET/CT, MRI and bioluminescence, amongst others.
The key user of the system said: “The scanner is versatile - in particular, it can be configured with two detectors simultaneously - and it saves valuable bench space by fitting in a small hood with the Agilent HPLC system that the company acquired at the same time.
“Users find the Scan-RAM system simple to operate, and it is GLP/GMP compliant - as is the Laura radiochromatography software that controls it. Further plus points are the instrument’s USB ports for fast data transfer, instrument and HV control and responsive after-sales support from LabLogic.”
