SynIQ Gallium Targets
Hybrid Target system for 68Ga production
The increasing demand for 68Ga motivated the development of cyclotron production methods. Liquid targets offer simple installation and lower investment. The workflow is similar to the fluorine production, but yields are low. Solid target systems are capable of producing much higher activity, but are more complicated to install and operate. SynIQ Ltd has developed a Hybrid Target to combine the benefits of solid- and liquid targets. The Hybrid Target operates with disposable preloaded solid target holders, tested up to 50 microamper beam current. After irradiation, the target material is automatically dissolved in the target system and transfered to the hotcell via PEEK capillary. Installation is simple, operation is controlled by a PLC.
