The integrated BG-75 Biomarker Generator requires significantly less facility space than conventional cyclotrons, as demonstrated in the figure below.
The BG-75 produces PET biomarkers and radioisotopes on demand. An integrated solution, the BG-75 encompasses an entire PET production lab in a 300 square feet (30 sq meter) room.learn more
The uniqueness of this system is that it is much smaller than conventional PET cyclotrons, easier to install, and simple to operate. Read more about the uniqueness of the Biomarker Generator in our case studies.learn more
