The AR-2000 System is the industry ‘Gold Standard’ for analyzing [ 18 F]FDG purity, 3 H and 14 C, on TLC plates, gels and blots.
The system provides direct digital counting of all radioisotopes including positron emitters, which guarantees quantitative accuracy and reproducibility for important metabolism experiments and radiochemical purity measurements. The AR-2000 is linear over 4-5 decades of activity, a range 100 –
1,000 times greater than the linear range of X-ray film, providing fast and reliable analyses. The scanner uses a gas-filled proportional counter, which can detect all beta and gamma emitting isotopes. An entire TLC lane can be imaged in less than one minute. Multiple lanes can be analyzed in a single automated run without operator intervention.
