The solution: an automatic injector that meets safety requirements and helps develop care in nuclear medicine

A whole technical room was therefore fitted out inside an armoured 52-ton lorry, abiding by the especially strict regulations laid down by the radiation protection office of Switzerland’s public health department.

In this system, Posijet® was a clear choice. Its level of radiation protection reassures the teams, while medical radiology technicians appreciate its ease of use. Lemer Pax’s independent fractionation and injection unit for high energy radiopharmaceuticals therefore become an integral part of this new healthcare solution. It turned out to be the top choice among Swiss nuclear medicine teams for equipping the new mobile medical imaging unit.

Swiss regulations in radiation protection are such that Posijet®, the unit for preparation and automatic injection, turned out to be the best solution.

Installation: a bespoke support service

To use Posijet®, the technicians insert a multidose bottle of radiopharmaceuticals at the start of the day. The fractionation and injection unit then calculates the doses for each patient, prepares them and carries out the injection. The medical radiology technicians can therefore take up to eight patients a day (18F-FDG, 68Ga-PSMA or 18F-Choline).

All the restrictions made us choose the Posijet® automatic injector. Personally, I’m very pleased with it. Lemer Pax’s training and support have been excellent. The remote familiarisation feature is an added bonus for us, making us more responsive, which we really needed to be. The regular software updates also make it easy to use.

This new system also helps speed up the rate of PET-CT testing, which means that patients don’t have to undergo long, often stressful waits.
