Hybrid Target system for 68Ga production

The increasing demand for 68Ga motivated the development of cyclotron production methods. Liquid targets
offer simple installation and lower investment. The workflow is similar to the fluorine production, but yields are
low. Solid target systems are capable of producing much higher activity, but are more complicated to install and
SynIQ Ltd has developed a Hybrid Target to combine the benefits of solid- and liquid targets. The Hybrid Target
operates with disposable preloaded solid target holders, tested up to 50 microamper beam current. After irradiation,
the target material is automatically dissolved in the target system and transfered to the hotcell via PEEK
capillary. Installation is simple, operation is controlled by a PLC.
