Perkin Elmer Wizard2 gamma counter

In November the SAI received the funding support ($14k) from UNC Core Facilities Advocacy Committee (CFAC) at the School of Medicine to refurbish our gamma counter, which will be used for radio-probe based biodistribution studies. We greatly appreciate the support from the institution. Biodistribution study based on gamma counting of radiolabeled compound provides superior sensitivity of tissue uptake and compound distribution, and it is an essential tool to validate imaging results in probe or new drug development studies.
