Radiochemistry Services

The CSIC’s Radiopharmacy includes a General Electric PETrace 880 18MeV self-shield cyclotron. This cyclotron allows the production of Fluorine-18, Carbon-11 (carbon dioxide), Nitrogen-13 (ammonia), Oxygen-15, and Gallium-68. The cyclotron includes the PROCAB processing system for Carbon-11 and a processing system for conversion of Oxygen-15 into [O-15]Water.
