RadQual, LLC Announces a New Industry Leading Dose Calibrator Reference Standard
Date:2/14/2011

WEARE, N.H., Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RadQual, LLC, a premier developer of innovative quality control products for nuclear medicine, SPECT, and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging, is pleased to announce the only dose calibrator standard directly traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for accurate measurement of gallium-68 and fluorine-18 is now available up to a 1 millicurie (37 MBq) strength.  Fluorine-18 is an important isotope in the radiopharmaceutical industry, and is primarily synthesized into fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) for use in positron emission tomography (PET) scans.  This new RadQual dose calibrator standard will help provide PET scan manufactures and end users a true dose calibrator standard to ensure compliance with many state and federal regulatory standards for accurate calibration of patient dose measurement.

Historically most facilities have been using cesium-137 or sodium-22 standards for Ga-68 and F-18 calibration.  RadQual has conducted a thorough study, in conjunction with NIST, which has determined that the old standards produced a measurement error as high as 17% when trying to measure F-18 doses.

Keith Allberg, RadQual's Director of Manufacturing and Regulatory Affairs said, "We believe our new dose calibrator reference standard will make a significant difference to the industry.  Our continuing study of facilities using or producing Ga-68 and F-18 worldwide indicates those facilities are incorrectly measuring the amount of radionuclide by as much as 19% and 17% respectively.  In addition, the information reported for F-18 has shown as great as a 27% difference between two different competitors' brands of dose calibrators and as much as a 9% difference within the same competitors brand and model.  The well-established practice of using either cesium-137 or sodium-22 for daily calibr
