A few months ago, Isotopia and Eckert & Ziegler Eurotope GmbH started their collaboration to automate the IsoPROTrace-11 process with KitLab and take full benefit from its advantages: full automation on a stand-alone device, maximized reproducibility of results and prevention of users from unnecessary radiation exposure.
IsoPROTrace-11 is the first cold kit that is automated with KitLab and has successfully been tested with a reaction time of 5 minutes and radiochemical purity of more than 98 %. The required amount of Gallium-68 was eluted from an Eckert & Ziegler
Ge-68/Ga-68 generator. The complete radiolabeling process takes place at room temperature without additional heating. To further facilitate the process, KitLab gives the option to automatically create a quality control sample after the process. It also measures the ambient temperature to avoid errors of result due to wrong temperatures.
So far, IsoPROTrace-11 has been successfully used in six Israeli PET centers in the past 2.5 years with a typical yield of 99 %. Currently the kit is produced at a GMP manufacturing site in Europe. To extend production capacity and to prepare for clinical trials and registration, Isotopia is aiming to open its own local production facility in the near future.
To learn more about IsoPROTrace-11 and plans regarding clinical trials, get in touch with Isotopia at their booth #28 during the EANM’18 or use the contact information below. For additional information regarding KitLab and the automation of your kits meet the Eckert & Ziegler Eurotope team at booth #35 or contact us directly.
We look forward to meeting you and discuss how you can benefit from our approach.
