DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP

This group is equipped with modern and unique instrumentation, which enables them to conduct research on a world-class level in molecular imaging, compounds marked with radioisotopes and materials used in electrochemical power sources.This instrumentation consists of: PET/CT/SPECT scanner (three modules), hot chambers, isotopic generators for synthesis and portioning of isotopically marked compounds (i.a. 18F, 64Cu, 68Ga), quality control system for radiopharmaceuticals, X-ray fluorescence EDXRF spectrometer for qualitative and quantitative studies of sample composition, equipment for spectroelectrochemical research (UV-VIS spectrometers, potentiostats), potentiostats, galvanostats and testers for accumulators and batteries.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

This group is equipped with modern and unique instrumentation, which enables them to conduct research on a world-class level in molecular imaging, synthesis of compounds marked with radioisotopes and materials used in electrochemical power sources.This instrumentation consists of: PET/CT/SPECT scanner (three modules), hot chambers, isotopic generators and modules for synthesis and portioning of isotopically marked compounds (i.a. 18F, 64Cu, 68Ga), quality control system for radiopharmaceuticals, X-ray fluorescence EDXRF spectrometer for qualitative and quantitative studies of sample composition, equipment for spectroelectrochemical research (UV-VIS spectrometers, potentiostats), potentiostats, galvanostats and testers for accumulators and batteries.

Research services

Considering the interdisciplinary profile of this group, cooperation options are dedicated to i.a. biologists, pharmacists, doctors, veterinary doctors, chemists etc. The research group offers possibilities of designing and performing studies on:

  1. application of isotopic and optical imaging (PET, SPECT) in research on biodistribution and metabolism of medicines, in monitoring disease development (oncology, neurology, cardiology, bone diseases, autoimmunological diseases, infections and inflammations) by use of small laboratory animals (mice, rats),
  2. in radiochemical syntheses using 18F isotope and metallic isotopes e.g. 64 Cu, 68 Ga,
  3. electrochemical properties of materials used in electrochemical power sources,
  4. performance of electrochemical and UV-VIS spectroelectrochemical organic and inorganic systems in water and non-water solutions,
  5. tests of accumulators and batteries.

Moreover, the group is willing to organize trainings, conferences, science and educational workshops, helping to understand ionizing radiation and electrochemical power sources.
