Oxygen-17 Product

17O in the form of gas and water for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Scientific Applications

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology is accelerating a revolution in medical imaging.

NMR technology based on Oxygen-17 uses the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei that occur naturally in the body. Oxygen-17 (17O) is now being used for diagnostic applications and medical research to create a new generation of NMR Images.

New developments with 17O enhance the quality of information about living tissue to improve the practice of medicine in the fields of cardiology and neurology among others.

The magnetic property of 17O makes it to a promising tool for assessing in vivo metabolic tissue information at high fields (≥3T).

 

Our Oxygen-17 products are manufactured in accordance with cGMP regulations and with the requirements of 21 Code of Federal Regulations: PARTS 210 and 211

 

We also have Oxygen-17 labeled D-Glucose available (6-O-17-Glucose, 38at% enriched at position 6). Please contact us for further information.
