Automated Radiosynthesis Modules Market To Make Great Impact In Near Future

Posted by Divakar on May 9th, 2017

Radiosynthesis modules are automated equipment used for radio pharmaceuticals synthesis and the molecular labelling. It is used for the formulation and production of radiotracers. Radioactive tracers are chemical compound in which atoms are replaced by radioisotope, radioactive decay mechanism is used to trace the path that is followed by radioisotope to form product. Mainly radioisotopes are manufactured in radiopharmaceutical units and laboratories. The half-life of radiotracers are limited, thus decreasing the performance in diagnostics and therapeutics. The scope of customization of production of radiotracer is decreased with the increase in time interval for the radiotracer to reach the end user. Radiosynthesis modules are easy to use and set and offers the scope for customization of the radiotracers. The product obtained from the automated radiosynthesis module can be used for both research and in the field of therapeutic nuclear medicine.

Nuclear medicine therapy is performed differently for different indications. While treatment of thyroid cancer or overactive thyroid gland, nuclear medicine is swallowed in a capsule or liquid form. Patients are usually treated as outpatients where single dose is needed in most of the cases. During treatment of joint pain (Arthritis), nuclear medicine is injected into joint fluid under local anaesthetic post which the joint is immobilized with the help of bandage or light splint. Bones affected due to spreading of pain caused by cancer is treated by injecting radiopharmaceutical in a vein in the arms. Automated radiosynthesis module is used during Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) imaging. It is the most common imaging techniques used in nuclear medicine.
