3D-printed automation for optimized PET radiochemistry

↵* Present address: Department of Radiology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY 10461, USA. Reproducible batch synthesis of radioligands for imaging by positron emission tomography (PET) in a manner that maximizes ligand yield, purity, and molar activity, and minimizes cost and exposure to radiation, remains a challenge, as new and synthetically complex radioligands become available. Commercially available automated synthesis units (ASUs) solve many of these challenges but are costly to install and cannot always accommodate diverse chemistries. Through a reiterative design process, we exploit the proliferation of three-dimensional (3D) printing technologies to translate optimized reaction conditions into ASUs composed of 3D-printed, electronic, and robotic parts. Our units are portable and robust and reduce radiation exposure, shorten synthesis time, and improve the yield of the final radiopharmaceutical for a fraction of the cost of a commercial ASU. These 3D-printed ASUs highlight the gains that can be made by designing a fit-for-purpose ASU to accommodate a synthesis over accommodating a synthesis to an unfit ASU. The diffusion and assimilation of technologies dep...

Wanderlust + Co’s first demi-fine jewellery line of necklaces, earrings, rings, and more

Whether it’s a little black dress or a crisp white shirt, a good wardrobe requires staples that can tide you through any social occasion. In the same grain, we need accessories that are classic, unfussy, and versatile — jewellery that you need not swap out. Ever. Not when you’re going for yoga, a swim, or even the sauna. The quest for an all-rounder inspired Wanderlust + Co’s founder Jenn Low — who juggles work and her two children below the age of three — to hoist the brand’s bestsellers to the next level. The result: Wanderlust + Co’s first demi-fine collection. The 15-piece-strong collection of necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, and anklets differ from the offerings we’re familiar with from Wanderlust + Co. For starters, the demi-fine line spotlights semi-precious stones (white topaz, opal, and freshwater pearls just to name but a few) while Low’s jewellery from her existing lines are typically studded with clear or coloured cubic zirconia. The demi-fine jewellery is built on 925 sterling silver (instead of brass) before they are plated with 14k gold. And despite the elevated materials used, this new range is gentle on our bank accounts — prices range from $80 to $140. Th...

Tube & Pipe Market Update: Manufacturing slowdown continues The FABRICATOR STAMPING Journal The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal The FABRICATOR en Español The Additive Report The FABRICATOR The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal STAMPING Journal The Additive Report The FABRICATOR en Español

Paul Vivian and Rick Preckel of Preston Pipe take a look at current affairs in the tube and pipe industry and the increasing slowdown in manufacturing. Getty Images The primary pipe and tube category that Preston Pipe analyzes that is of interest to The Tube & Pipe Journal readership is mechanical tubing. This category includes conduit, off-the-welder tubes with wall thickness less than 0.156 inch, hot-finished seamless, cold-drawn seamless, and drawn-over-mandrel products. The applications are broad, as is the manufacturing base. This isn’t to exclude other tube and pipe products. Indeed, all pipe and tube products are significant contributors to the U.S. economy. In total this year, pipe and tube shipments from domestic mills will represent about 14 percent of steel manufactured in this country. To put this into perspective, based on data researched by Preston, auto manufacturing will consume a similar amount of steel this year. While it is likely that some steel used for domestic pipe and tube production was imported, it is clear that pipe and tube products make a substantial contribution to the steel economy. Durable goods manufacturing continues to weaken overall. Accor...

This makes the 0.5mm pitch connector suitable for automotive use. The series can accept a tabbed FFC/FPC and inserting it into the connector is user-friendly due to the wide 110° opening range of the rotating actuator. The 2mm-high connector comes with a 0.5A current rating and up to 68 contacts. The actuator is robust and the axle is securely hooked in place from above by the tips on the end of the contacts. This forms a type of hinge to ensure it does not come off under rough operation. Firm latches within each side of the connector, known as ‘side catchers’ are provided to guide and hold a tabbed FFC/FPC in place. In addition they provide a high FFC/FPC retention force as they prevent the FFC/FPC from being pulled out easily. A clear tactile click confirms secure lock completion providing overall high connection reliability. Furthermore, the FH52K series is designed with L-shaped metal fittings to allow visual inspection of the soldering process from the top. An enhanced board retention force of approximately 90N can be achieved. Opinion : 3D printing gets 1000x speed boost with nanometre resolution – What’s fuelling our data? – News & Technology…...

Oak Park improving Coolidge bridge over I-696 | Local News

This rendering shows the improvements that Oak Park is doing to improve the Coolidge bridge over I-696. The $667,591 project is scheduled to be completed by the second week in December. This rendering shows the improvements that Oak Park is doing to improve the Coolidge bridge over I-696. The $667,591 project is scheduled to be completed by the second week in December. City officials said they want to improve on the old prison-like cyclone fencing that was there and transform the look of the Coolidge overpass. “This is an aesthetic project,” said City Manager Erik Tungate. “The fencing has been there since the freeway was build decades ago and is all bent up and fractured. We didn’t want to replace it with the same fencing.” Plans are to install more decorative mesh fencing and other improvements to enhance the city’s image for all the I-696 motorists who drive beneath the bridge each day. One of the highlights of the design is to place fabricated metal sections in the center on both sides of the bridge identifying Oak Park along with a leafs from the city’s seal. Even though Coolidge is a city road in Oak Park, the city had to get approval for the project from the Michigan Dep...
