The ACS-TR19 is described as a 19 MeV fixed and variable energy negative ion cyclotrons for the production of commonly used PET (positron emission tomography) radioisotopes; F-18, N-13, O-15, C-11 and Pd-103, as well as research isotopes.
The question I received from a User in Europe was as follows (paraphrased):
QUESTION: I have used the XCF-200 carbon foil on the ACS and it's good, but I wanted to try the PCG-400, I used it for 7 days, It's OK, Because transmission values are the %88-89 that is successful. Double irradiations are 90 mikroamper that we see on the targets. The arc value is average 5 amper.
If the transmission values are high value, this is good or not good for the production?
Does the machine produce high activity that is to the low value transmission?
