MPI Research and 3D Imaging reported the arrival of the cyclotron, a particle accelerator, at its new Translational Imaging Center in Mattawan, Michigan. The radioisotopes produced from the cyclotron will be used to visualize, characterize, and quantify biological, chemical, and physiological processes at the cellular and molecular level in vivo. The cyclotron expands the portfolio of available radioisotopes that can be used in molecular imaging and provides drug developers a way to track drugs.
Products from the cyclotron will become commercially available when the Translational Imaging Center opens in May 2014.
