What sets FASTlab 2 apart from all other chemistry systems is its unique, cassette-based design. Pre-measured quantities of every chemical and component needed for the synthesis of a radiopharmaceutical are contained in a single cassette. That means it only takes two simple steps to start producing virtually any clinical tracer you need. All you have to do is drop in a pre-loaded cassette and the system is ready for processing.
This unique, cassette-based system not only simplifies this step of tracer production, it also makes it more reliable and secure compared to other methods. Our cassettes are manufactured in a controlled environment, pre-loaded with reagents produced under cGMP standards, barcoded for automatic identification and sealed shut. They are also disposable, so when a run is complete, each component that comes into contact with the chemical is replaced to ensure clean operation.
FASTlab 2 is designed for easy, confident production of a broad spectrum of PET tracers. It enables automated synthesis of FDG and other 18F-based PET tracers with high output and uptime. Two synthesizers can be stacked into a single hot cell, giving you greater output and saving valuable lab space. With our FDG Duo cassette, you can perform up to four FDG citrate runs without opening the hot cell door. In addition, FASTlab 2 Developer gives you even greater flexibility by enabling you to develop your own tracers and then allowing you to produce them using the cassette system.
