Radionuclide Screening and Synthesis Service

The radionuclide is an essential part of the acting part of RDC (Radionuclide Drug Conjugate), which can play a role in killing cancer cells and diagnostic imaging. Types of radionuclides are approved for application in RDC nowadays.

Rdcthera, as a professional CRO company, can provide radionuclide synthesis service. Since we have synthesis services for a wide range of radionuclides, we are capable of radionuclide screening to find the most suitable radionuclide in your specific RDC development.

Overview of Radionuclides

The radioactive particle is the effective part of the radiopharmaceutical, which can emit β- or α- beams to deliver radiation directly to the tumor cells. For a given chemical element, radionuclides have the same number of protons in each atom, but they have different numbers of neutrons. In theory, all chemical elements in nature can exist as radionuclides.

As the radionuclide is too small to be stable in patients, it can be chelated with antibodies, small molecules, and peptides to maintain stability. A myriad of radionuclides has been conjugated with ligand applied for clinical research. The radionuclide in RDC works as the cell-damaging tool and the diagnostic tool imaging by PET or SPECT. There are three types of radionuclides that are most commonly used in RDC.

Three Types of Radionuclides

Alpha Particle Beta Particle Gamma Particle
The alpha particle is the least penetrating, but it is powerful enough to damage diseased cells. Though the beta particle can only penetrate air and paper, it is commonly used in cancer treatment. The most penetrating gamma particle can penetrate air, paper, or thin metal, which is the reason why gamma particle is broadly used in nuclear imaging.

Our Service

  • Radionuclide Screening Service
  • Different types of radionuclides are used for different applications, including diagnostic imaging and targeted therapy, depending on the type of energy they emit. The radioactive particles emitting gamma rays are used for imaging at the cell level, while other radioactive particles emitting beta beams or alpha beams, which can damage targeted tumor cells with an excellent therapeutic effect, are wildly used as radiopharmaceuticals.

    Because of our excellent nucleosynthesis capabilities, Rdcthera can offer radionuclide screening service to find the suitable radionuclide for your specific-utilized RDC.
