Radiochemistry

We offer a fully equipped radiochemistry laboratory where we can label everything from liposomes, antibodies and proteins and all the way down to small molecules. Please inquire the facility coordinator if you have a project in mind and want to know more. 

In general, SPECT tracers are synthesized upon request, while PET tracers are available or can be made available with minimum set-up time (see list below).
