Synthra MeIplus Research

Synthra MeIplus Research is a flexible and completely automated synthesis system for routine production of wide variety of [11C]carbon-labeled compounds based on the generation of gas-phase [11C]methyl iodide or optional [11C]methyl triflate synthesis.

The Module can be used for solid support heterogeneous as well as homogeneous reactions.

The synthesizer has two reaction vessels and the capability to produce [11C]HCN as well as [11C]CO for further labeling procedures.

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