From Cyclotron to Patient via HPLC
The use of HPLC (high pressure liquid chromatography, also called high performance liquid chromatography) has become an increasingly useful tool in radiopharmaceutical chemistry. Initially a quick method for analysis of radiochemical products, it has evolved into a method now used in many institutions for the preparation of radiopharmaceuticals for human administration.
