The unique plastic manipulation box, ideal for beta-emitting isotopes, and the different shielding thickness available make it suitable for manipulating any type of radiopharmaceutical including those specific for metabolic radiotherapy. ELENA meets all calibration and manipulation fractionating requirements of Nuclear Medicine departments.
It is equipped with a laminar flow work chamber and ventilated pre-chambers for the transit of materials, to house generators and to confine waste.
The machine offers exclusive technical solutions which guarantee unique performance in terms of:
Sterility: the laminar air flow work area (Class A according to EEC-cGMP) allows handling radiopharmaceuticals in absolute safe conditions for the product. All the outwards accesses are equipped with airtight interlocked pre-chambers (Class B according to EEC-cGMP)
Radiation protection: shields are made to ensure the full protection of the operator
Ergonomics: all the components required for the dose preparation are placed within the range of action of the operator’s hands
Safety: the main door of the isolator is equipped with a lock system, controlled by an internal double probe G.M. detector
Management of the critical parameters: the isolator is equipped with a modern operator panel to control, adjust and export the cell inner parameters, notifications and alarms
Versatility: different shielding spacers, make the cell versatile and suitable for different uses. The large internal chamber and the shape of the work surface allow installing automatic synthesis modules or fractionators for syringes and vials
Duration through time: the high-quality of the components used ensure duration over time and performance consistency.
