Novel F-18 Beta-Hydroxybutyric Acid Radiotracers for PET Imaging


Researchers at the University of Alberta have synthesized novel beta-hydroxybutyric acid radiotracers for PET imaging using a 3 step radiosynthetic process. The compounds are designed to serve as radiofluorinated analogues of endogenous non-fluorinated metabolites. The biodistribution of the radiotracers in PET scans of normal mice show uptake in tissues that are difficult to visualize by […]

A Novel Method for CryoPreservation of Cells in Monolayers


Researchers at the University of Alberta have developed a novel method to cryopreserve cells while adhered in a monolayer configuration. This method can preserve cells on a substrate and provide high post-thaw cell viability. Your company could then supply cryopreserved bioengineered cell monolayers directly in the desired configuration for immediate use.


Allows cryopreservation of cells […]
