Radiosynthesis is a completely automated synthesis which includes production of radioactive compounds. The process is carried by various nuclear interface modules which are further protected by the lead shielding and is semi-automatically controlled by the computer. Modules are set-up differently depending on the synthesis process and type of product. These Radiosynthesis equipment modules are adapted with the synthesis stages consecutively. Radiosynthesis equipment are also used for molecular labeling and formulation and production of radiotracers. These radioactive tracers are chemical compounds for which atoms are replaced by the radioisotopes. Radioisotopes are used in diagnostic areas with SPECT and PET. Radiosynthesis equipment are easy-to-use and allows scope for customization of radiotracers. Results obtained by these Radiosynthesis equipment can further also be used for research purposes and therapeutic nuclear medicine. Government support for diagnostic related researches favors the production of radiosynthesis equipment. For instance, Department of Energy provided around $1 million phase II grant under the SBIR program for developing micro-scale technology for simple and rapid synthesis of PET probes.
