Radiochemistry Facility

The Radiochemistry Facility is on the first floor of the Lucas Expansion building. The heart of the Radiochemistry Facility is a GE PETtrace cyclotron, which is used for the production of radioisotopes for clinical and research use. Surrounding the cyclotron is a FDG production lab and research hot labs. The hot labs, fully equipped with hot cells and shielded fume hoods, are used for the production of research radiopharmaceuticals as well as provide space for radiochemistry research to develop new radiopharmaceuticals. These radiopharmaceuticals are used to support both clinical and research PET studies at the Stanford University Medical Center and the Stanford Center for Innovation in In-Vivo Imaging (SCI3).
