We synthesized 18F-FDG by using an automated synthetic apparatus "FDG MicroLab" (GE Medical Systems) which produces 18F-FDG by a solid phase 18F-fluorination. Its quality and reproducibility were evaluated in order to assess feasibility of the apparatus for routine clinical production of 18F-FDG. For 5 consecutive 18F-FDG synthesis, target irradiation was carried out at 15 microA for 60 min. 18F-FDG was obtained in 50 min after EOB with an end-of-synthesis yield of 9.34 +/- 1.06 GBq… Expand

Chemical impurities in [18F]FDG preparations produced by solid-phase 18F-fluorination.
The levels of several chemical impurities were determined in the [18F]FDG preparations produced by solid-phase 18F-fluorination and no notable radiochemical impurities, including 2-[18F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-mannose, were detected in the preparations. Expand

Levels of several ionic impurities including Cl- and Ca2+ were significantly higher in the virgin [18O]water than in the recycled water, while significantly larger amounts of organic impurities were detected in the former, Hence, trace amounts of organics were not responsible for the lower [18F]FDG yield.

Tritium in [18O]water containing [18F]fluoride for [18F]FDG synthesis.
Tritium was detected in enriched [18O]water irradiated with 9.6 MeV protons used to produce [18F]fluoride by the 18O(p, n)18F reaction, and the existence of tritium was confirmed experimentally. Expand
