To produce 11C, the protons need to reach the target at 16- 18MeV. The Cyclone® KIUBE is thus ideal for 11C production. This cyclotron has 8 exit ports, giving you the flexibility to produce a wide range of radioisotopes.
Nirta® Gas target
Proton bombardment of nitrogen gas causes the 14N(p,α)11C nuclear reaction.
2 Gas Target available:
- [11C]CO2 bombardment in the presence of oxygen produces [11C]carbon dioxide
- - [11C]CH4 bombardment in the presence of hydrogen produces[11C]methane.
Carbon 11 chemistry module
Diverse solutions can be used for the synthesis of a wide range of 11C labelled molecules: PIB, Acetate, Choline, Methionine, Raclopride,…
