NuCare Medical Systems Buys Patented LFS Scintillation Crystals & Arrays
November 28, 2011
NuCare Medical Systems of Korea Purchases Zecotek’s Patented LFS Scintillation Crystals & Arrays
Singapore, November 28, 2011 - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX-V: ZMS
“We have ordered Zecotek’s LFS-7 scintillation crystals for use in a non-destructive assay system and the development of a new positron emission tomography (PET) system,” said Dr. Jinhun Joung, Chief Executive Officer NuCare Medical Systems. “The price point, the superior performance and IP stability of the LFS crystals are very attractive to NuCare with the aim of maintaining our international competitiveness in the specialized field of nuclear medical imaging. With Zecotek’s assistance we can meet our goal.”
“NuCare Medical Imaging has order our LFS-7 crystals and arrays due to their superior performance and competitive pricing,” said Dr. Faouzi Zerrouk, Chairman and President of Zecotek. “More and more of organizations are recognizing the competitive advantages of our medical imaging components, crystals and arrays, in bringing unprecedented performance to a wide range of imaging technologies at a competitive cost. We anticipate growing demand for our crystals and have taken steps to ensure a consistent supply and consistent supply of our scintillation crystals.”
Zecotek has developed and patented a new class of advanced materials for use in next-generation PET, PET-CT, PET-MRI and other specialized medical imaging scanners. When combined with Zecotek’s MAPD solid-state photo detectors, the LFS scintillation crystals allows for medical imaging devices to have higher resolution, enhanced diagnosis, improved patient outcomes, faster patient throughput and lower unit costs. Other medical applications for LFS are in micro-PET detectors, widely used in drug research, and in gamma cameras used for breast and prostate examinations. Non-medical applications include gamma ray detector systems for homeland security, geological surveying, materials analysis, high energy physics and nuclear stockpile monitoring.
