New nuclear medicine system: Lemer Pax Partners with Confluent Group

After being operational partners for several years, Confluent and Lemer Pax have decided to officialise their partnership. Lemer Pax is providing the hospital with the new generation Posijet® radiopharmaceutical injection system for 3 months. The test phase will demonstrate the benefits of this technological innovation for patients and the clinical staff. It will also be an opportunity to cement the ties between the two Nantes-based businesses.

The Posijet®

Lemer Pax is the first company to have developed a mobile unit for the preparation and injection of drugs radiolabelled with positron-emitting radionuclides: the Posijet®. Based on its many years of experience, Lemer Pax has introduced the new Posijet®, which incorporates the latest embedded technologies. Posijet® offers optimal radiation protection for operators, and an unprecedented level of precision during preparation and injection. Operators can choose between manual or automatic injection mode for added safety. Posijet® is Wi-Fi-enabled so it always has the latest updated patient lists. With the new dilution function, Posijet® can use 100% of the radioactive stock solution, for more flexible patient management and efficient purchasing of radiopharmaceuticals.

Special features that make the new generation Posijet® better than the rest:

  • Additional controls and monitoring of the doses administered
  • The ability to use single-dose concentrated vials thanks to the dilution function
  • Readily available information about the quantities injected and the remaining activity in the vial for efficient drug ordering and lower costs for the hospital
  • Better integration into the hospital’s IT system
  • Power-assisted wheels for easy handling and to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs)
  • In automatic mode, the patient doesn’t feel the injection at all
