The cyclotron is a 16.5/8.4 MeV PETtrace 800-series cyclotron with dual extraction. Targets for 18F, 11C (CO2 and CH4), 13N and 15O are available, generating a wide range of possibilities in terms of radiolabelling. In addition, the solid target unit Alceo (Comecer) will make possible the production of metal radionuclides such as 64Cu and 89Zr and 45Ti.
