Dose Calibrators model Talete and Pitagora
April 10, 2008
TALETE and PITAGORA are new concept in radionuclide Dose Calibrators, designed to comply with the latest regulations and to offer state-of-the-art performances.
Due to the new-design electrometer board and application software, they provide fast and accurate radionuclides sample measurements. TALETE and PITAGORA have on-board programmed diagnostic functions, such as zero, background adjustment and HV measurement, together with a full set of quality control routines, making them ideal instruments for Nuclear Medicine departments and PET facilities.
The new application software includes all features required for a fast and reliable use of the instrument: SQL Database structure for storing and retrieving all procedures and labels, report generation, application time activity calculation, fast Daily QC execution, sources archive, user defined geometries database. These Dose Calibrators are designed for continuous use and are configured both as Stand-Alone instruments (TALETE-SA) or to be installed inside Comecer’s hot cells (TALETE-HC) or to have full software and hardware integration in Comecer’s automatic machines (PITAGORA).
TALETE and PITAGORA have stainless steel finishing for easy cleaning and decontamination. They consists of one or two module with high pressure, deep well, ion chamber coupled to a high precision measuring electronics and a separate industrial PC based console. The large 12” LCD touch screen with IP65 protection degree allows to operate Talete with great handiness. The software was developed to speed up quality check and measurement operation, bearing in mind the needs of a laboratory use: large area virtual buttons allow to control the instrument even with gloves.
The Comecer dose calibrator is a class IIb Medical Device and CE certified (93/42/EEC Attachment II) by accredited institute TÜV 0123
TALETE has two basic configurations:
- TALETE-SA: Stand Alone model
- TALETE-HC: Comecer’s hot cells model
Both configurations have second chamber connection capability for further upgrade of the system. Both chamber display and control are simultaneous.
PITAGORA is the configuration meant to be fully integrated inside Comecer’s automatic systems; this integration consists of a direct and safe connection between PITAGORA (which manages dose calibrators) and the PC controlling the automatic machine. PITAGORA includes two chambers in its basic configuration.
