PET Metabolite HPLC Detector
The PET Metabolite HPLC Detector is a dual BGO coincidence detection system for monitoring research compounds and their metabolites labeled with PET radioisotopes.
The system consists of an electronics base unit and two large BGO crystals mounted on photomultiplier tubes. The detectors are supplied with mounts and a flow cell holder and can be used up to 12 feet away from the base unit making shielding easier.
Eckert & Ziegler’s PET Metabolite HPLC Detector will be discontinued and replaced with its advanced successor FlowCountPRO with the beginning of 2022. Take advantage of introductory prices and get your offer for FlowCountPRO.
Service and maintenance for PET Metabolite will be continued beyond 2022.
The system consists of an electronics base unit and two large (1.5 x 1 inch) BGO crystals mounted on photomultiplier tubes. The detectors are supplied with mounts and a flow cell holder and can be used up to 12 feet away from the base unit making shielding easier.
Specially designed electronics produce a count only when coincidence events are detected. The system has high sensitivity and very low background levels (less than 10 cpm). Easily adjustable flow cell volumes allow further optimization of the sensitivity.
A standard 0 to 1 volt analog signal can be used to connect the PET Metabolite Detector to your existing chromatography data system. The digital TTL pulse signal can be interfaced with RaPET Chromatography Software for maximum sensitivity and dynamic range.
Features and Benefits
- Coincidence detection for high sensitivity with low background interface
- Ideal for the detection of PET isotopes in blood plasma
- Analog and TTL outputs
- Compatible with any liquid chromatography system
- Extended range option
- Optional radio-chromatography data systems
The PET metabolite detector can be used with any HPLC system. The TTL output can be used with any multi scaling system or RaPET Chromatography Software. The analog output can be interfaced with chart recorders, integrators, or other HPLC data systems.
The PET Metabolite is a Flow-Count modified for dual coincidence detection. Please visit our FlowCountPRO page for more detection options.
