64Cu-, 89Zr-, and 124I- PET Tracers Cost of isotope (most from third party suppliers),
plus labor. Estimates available in advance.

plus labor. Estimates available in advance.

 

1  Specialty equipment includes a cryostat, phosphor imager and a gamma counter.

Assisted rate is the sum of the specific scanner rate and labor rate, and assumes one staff member is needed for the duration of the scan.  In some cases, including non-living specimens, there may be less labor time and the assisted rate will be lower.  Very complex studies may require an additional staff member and an additional labor charge.

3  [18F]FDG is obtained from a third party supplier and prices are subject to change.
Quantity discounts are available; for example, 3-15 mCi is $150 (UC), $242 (non-UC academic), and $298 (private industry).

4  18F- and 11C-PET tracers in routine production, and typical quantities produced, are:

[18F]FLT, [18F]FHBG, [18F]FMISO, and [18F]PBR111 (each >100 mCi);

[18F]FBA and [18F]SFB (for peptide labeling; >500 mCi);

[11C]Raclopride, [11C]SCH23390, and [11C]PK11195 (each >15 mCi).
