The solution: Lemer Pax products combining safety, innovation, technicality, pure and reassuring design

To take up this ambitious project and respect the numerous stakes in terms of safety, ergonomics and aesthetics, the Lemer Pax teams proposed latest generation products offering very high safety and radiation protection levels for the workers, while preserving optimum operating comfort and ensuring perfect compliance with radiopharmacy preparation good practices and total safety of the patients. Furthermore, the equipment was designed in accordance with the expectations of the Centre Georges Charpak and preserved the reassuring atmosphere that the architects had intended to create.

I wanted equipment that would be easy to use, efficient and ergonomic for my radiographers…. And which respects the aesthetics chosen for the premises, making it a reassuring building.

Implementation: a dedicated solution adapted to each activity

For the low and medium energy activity, the Easypharma compact vision+ hot cell was chosen for its excellent working comfort. With its extra-wide fully glazed radiation-shielded door, operators have a perfect and complete view over the entire work surface, ensuring safer movements and less tiredness. The possibility of working while sitting down also represents a real advantage in terms of daily working ergonomics.

I love using the Easypharma Compact since it offers a complete field of vision, the inclined front and the height are very comfortable when working standing up or half-seated. It is also extremely easy to clean

Radiographer at the Centre Georges Charpak

In the hot laboratory, the Easypharma HE hot cell was the latest addition to the radiation protection equipment. With its reduced footprint and pure design, it blends perfectly in the department’s premises and thereby represents an alternative solution to the injector, as recommended by regulations. For the PET unit, the Posijet® injector was chosen for its optimum technical performance, perfectly in line with the department’s project and its cost optimisation ambition: “in particular, it optimises the injected radiotracer doses for the benefit and safety of both patients and workers.” (Source: GCS activity report). Its ability to integrate with the Venus software work list and its highly safe operation comply, in particular, with the requirements of the Centre Georges Charpak. The unit had to be able to cope with the increasing workload expected on the Quimper site while guaranteeing optimum radiation protection for the users. The Posijet motor was also a decisive feature since it makes the unit extremely easy to move around and therefore protects radiographers against musculoskeletal disorders in their daily work. The possibility of choosing the colour (grey) was also an advantage, allowing the product to blend in with the atmosphere of the premises. Lastly, for the team to become quickly familiar with our equipment and work independently, Lemer pax’ engineers were available on site during theoretical and practical training sessions. The dedicated Posijet® team also provided support up to the first injections: comfort when deploying the equipment and safety at work were points much appreciated by the automated injector users.
