The Radio-HPLC has been designed with Shimadzu to deliver the best performance and an excellent price / performance ratio for the QC of FDG.

It is the best combination of pump, detector types, software solutions and radio protection you can find in the market . The system contains everything you need to run HPLC testing according to the European Pharmacopoeia for FDG.

The radio-HPLC has been designed to get very short analysis time, very high sensitivity without compromising the resolution. It contains a Helium purge to avoid carboxylation of NaOH, a degasser, a solvent selection valve, a pump, a column oven, a pulse amperiometric detector (PAD) and a PET radio flow detector.

The entire system is controlled by a GMP/GLP compliant software and all signals are integrated digitally without the need of an imprecise analogue to digital conversion.

The software has also an audit trail, user management and is 21 CFR Part11 compliant.
