One Million Solutions in Health presents a discussion from the NIH of a new dose calibrator for radioactive tracers in biodistribution studies that has the potential to advance the technology to a new level of sensitivity, accuracy and range for small radiation doses.

BOSTON, Feb. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- One Million Solutions in Health presents Dr. Stephen Adler, PhD, discussing "New Dose Calibrator for Radioactive Tracers in Biodistribution Studies that Can Increase Accuracy 10-Fold " from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in a webinar.

This One Million Solutions in Health webinar introduced a ground-breaking new dose calibrator for radioactive tracers in biodistribution studies that has the potential to advance the technology to a new level of sensitivity, accuracy and range for small radiation doses.

A micro-dose calibrator is designed to improve radiation dose measurements used in pre-clinical in-vivo and ex-vivo radiopharmaceutical drug development studies.

Using the patented concept of a segmented well counter, the radiation measurement upper limits hindering the use of a standard single crystal well counter have been eliminated.

The current research into this new technology will be presented by Dr. Adler who has built a fully operational 8 crystal segment micro-dose calibrator to test his invention.

The results of his work will show the potential for the technology to improve the accuracy and efficiency of the work done at the pre-clinical phase of radiopharmaceutical drug discovery.
