Standard Features

The module can be used to perform various solid phase extraction (SPE) routines to provide user-defined formulation of a PET radiochemical. Explora™ FM module provides a simple automation of the purification process with flexible, user-friendly configuration software allowing you to design different purification schemes and custom routines. The FM module is particularly useful in the production of 18F – NaF. 


As configured from the factory, the Explora FM has two flow paths such that the system can be set up for two runs. Each pathway has two SPE cartridge slots. 


Siemens Explora family of radiochemistry modules, including the Explora FM Formulation Module, is part of a comprehensive line of radiochemistry modules for efficient PET compound preparation. All modules are computer controlled using a Windows®-based graphical user interface, offering both convenience and flexibility.
