Research Cells

for research on medical and non-medical products

Our research and development cells are fully customizable. The hot cells are designed according to the shielding and process requirements of alpha, beta or gamma emitters and equipped with various optional features. They are offered as single or in combination with other hot cells as a functional complex.

Key Features

Detail Information

For the handling of alpha, beta and gamma emitters in research and development for medical and non-medical applications, Eckert & Ziegler offers a wide range of solutions from lead shielded hot cells to alpha boxes, all complying with the highest quality standards. All cells are fully customizable according to process requirements and can be extended with a wide range of optional features to facilitate research work.

Research Cells for PET Radiopharmaceuticals

We offer research hot cells designed for the development of new radiopharmaceuticals based on short-lived positron-emitters. They are used for the implementation of fully- or semi-automated synthesis devices for PET-radiopharmaceuticals. The setup is especially suitable for PET centres which provide daily routine products, like FDG, on the one hand, and on the other hand carry out innovative research activities, for example on Ga-68 based radiopharmaceuticals.
The design and all dimensions of the research cell can be customized upon request for your intended process and/or physical conditions.
For the handling of Ga-68 we offer a special solution featuring acid resistant coating of the inner cell with polyethylene and a shielded generator storage under the hot cell.

Process and Services

Eckert & Ziegler is committed to deliver the best possible solution for your process and project. Therefore, we offer several services for the arrangement of facilities inside new or present premises together with our hot cell equipment. These include consulting and support for the determination of space, clean room, auxiliary and special additional requirements as well as material and personnel flow schemes, effectivity testing, measurement and customization of shielding and lead glass windows for your application.
Furthermore, we provide mock-ups for testing the functional handling and special combined transport and docking solutions for input and output of radioactive material into the hot cell. A dedicated project manager will support you from first contact, via design, installation and training to service and extension of your facility.

Special Solutions and Optional Features

We offer various additions and options for your research cell to further facilitate your daily work and processes.

These include:

  • Shielding up to 100 mm of lead and customization of lead glass window on request
  • Additional lifting element on the back side of the cell, also with lead glass window possible
  • Double-door lock for inactive material
  • Double-door lock in the bottom or shielded product storage under the hot cell to lock out of the radiopharmaceuticals
  • Integrated dose rate monitoring and dose calibrator
  • Especially for Ga-68: acid resistant polyethylene coating of the inner cell and shielded generator storage below the cell with sealed fit to the inner cell
