Radioisotope

The Radioisotope Facility (gamma and beta emission) follows strict rules driven by requirements of improved safety for workers on radioactive sample handling. All new users must perform radiation safety training.

Consists of dedicated areas for labeling of proteins, other macromolecules and low molecular weight compounds by chemical modification.

Provides pharmacokinetics, biodistribution, and metabolite studies to investigators or external entities upon request and contract. The physical proximity to the Animal Facility enables in vitro and in vivo studies.
