Synthra FDGtwo

Synthra FDGtwo is a flexible and completely automated synthesis system for routine production of [18F]FDG as well as of [18F]fluorine-labeled compounds like [18F]FMISO, [18F]FLT or [18F]FCh by nucleophilic substitution.

Two independent sets of a single synthesis unit allow two [18F]FDG productions with one setup.

Synthra provides its own software with manual and automatic modes of operation.
