  2. Resource Description
    "There are a variety of radiotracers available, and an additional charge applies depending upon the particular radiotracer used. Please contact Joel Karp at joelkarp@mail.med.upenn.edu for more information." "The cyclotron facility houses a Japan Steel Works BC3015, 30 MeV cyclotron and an IBA 18 MeV Cyclone machine. The JSW cyclotron is capable of accelerating p, d, 3He, and 4He. Beam currents of 10-20 mA are typical with a maximum current capability of 30-40 mA. We use protons at 22 MeV to produce 11C, 13N and most 18F-labeled tracers, and deuterons at 11 MeV for 15O, 18F-DOPA and E18F-5, (the latter two are produced from 18F gas). The IBA cyclotron provides for higher beam currents than are available on the JSW machine. Specifically, the 18F- production yield increases from 1.5 Ci to 10 Ci and 11C yield increases from 1 Ci to 2.5 Ci, thereby increasing yields of research tracers. While the JSW can only irradiate 1 target at a time, the IBA is capable of irradiating 2 targets simultaneously."
