Our team at CRC constantly develops faster, cheaper and safer techniques to prepare PET tracers. As a result, more convenient methods to introduce 18F on organic compounds were developed and patented. Thanks to these technical developments, we are now able to produce multiple high-quality 18F based tracers suitable for clinical studies (GMP facilities). Some recent molecular imaging technologies require more elaborated radiolabeled compounds (e.g. peptides, proteins, oligonucleotides, lipids…) facing significant stability issues and side reactions. To tackle this increasing problem, we have developed a library of small 18F labelled compounds (prosthetic groups), which can be easily conjugated to biomolecules specific to the targeted biological process.
