Success Story: VUmc Amsterdam

Big research with small valves: Bürkert solenoid valves prove themselves in the production of PET tracers

Success Story VUmc Amsterdam

The VU University Medical Center (VUmc) in Amsterdam is a renowned research institute for oncological diagnostics, i.e. the detection of tumour diseases. The tumours are detected by means of medical tracers for the analysis of metabolic processes. For the production of radioactive tracer substances the institute has been using Type 0127 solenoid valves from Bürkert for nearly ten years.

Type 0127
Direct-acting 2/2 or 3/2 way Rocker-Solenoid Valve with separating diaphragm

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is used to visualise and characterise biological processes in the living organism. The complex and costly procedure exists for a serious purpose: the precise diagnosis of cancer diseases. PET diagnosis is very complex and costly; however, it allows researchers to more closely examine metabolic processes in the human body and to better understand how cancer originates, in order to better treat the disease. Bürkert solenoid valves do their part in contributing to this research.
