Fumehood with Schlenk line

Fumehood with Schlenk line

2 - 4 fumehoods available for safe synthetic activities. One is equipped with a Schlenk line for dry chemistry.

Our laboratory is located in a university affiliated research hospital with access to preclinical and clinical imaging equipment. We have a GE PET Trace 18 MeV cyclotron that can produce O-15, N-13, C-11, F-18, Ga-68, Tc-99m, and (soon) Zr-89. We actively collaborate with groups across the city of London to take advantage of advanced equipment and world-leading expertise.

Besides a standard chemistry laboratory space, we also have a Health Canada regulated Good Manufacturing Procedure facility. This close relationship between basic science and clinical production provides a unique training opportunity as well as facilitates innovative translational research to answer pressing clinical questions.
