October 14, 2014, Shirley, NY - Biodex will be demonstrating the ENHANCED Atomlab 500Plus at the SNMMI 2014 Chapter Meeting, Biodex Booth #25.

The Atomlab 500Plus combines the industry gold standard Atomlab 500 Dose Calibrator and Wipe Test Counter, offering you a complete and cost-effective solution for all of your molecular imaging needs. The intuitive Atomlab 500Plus provides fast, accurate radionuclide activity measurements with performance that complies with the most stringent regulatory requirements.

Offering the widest activity range with unsurpassed accuracy, the Atomlab 500Plus Dose Calibrator now has additional features for exceptional hot lab management.  An enhanced “zero background” feature allows users to configure system background count time from 30, 60 or 100 seconds, expanded isotope libraries include Lu-177 and Ra-223 isotopes and a new Half-life Verification App is included in the nuclear pharmacy menu. Results show the calculated half-life and variance to the published half-life for the selected isotope.

Don’t miss the opportunity to also view the NEW Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System software capabilities.  The Atomlab 960, an advanced spectrum analysis instrument designed for diverse nuclear medicine applications, boasts a count rate of 150,000 cps and is engineered for mobility, durability and operational efficiency.  The combination of a new unique positioning LED and distance measurement rod allows for easy and reproducible patient positioning and uptake measurements during nuclear imaging.

Thyroid uptake studies, manual MCA program, wipe tests, bioassay, and other user-defined tasks are accomplished with speed and precision using this fully integrated computer-controlled instrument and its comprehensive selection of application software.  

The Atomlab 960 also offers a NEW optional DICOM compliant program which incorporates the Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System with hospital management systems, streamlining workflows and improving communication.  The DICOM Software program retrieves patient information from the worklist and uploads the patient results, without exiting out of the clinical software, increasing staff productivity and efficiency.  DICOM allows the thyroid uptake reports to be transferred, stored and queried/retrieved throughout a facility.  Physicians can view both images and uptake reports simultaneously.

Visit Biodex Booth #25 for more information and individual demonstrations.  The SNMMI Meeting takes place at the Hilton Stamford Hotel, Stamford CT from November 7 – 8, 2014.
