Radiochemicals

Our sister company Biotrend in Germany offers a range of radiochemicals (radioisotopes, radiolabeled compounds and radiography standars) and customs services for synthesis and radiolabeling.

Radiochemistry is defined by the chemistry of radioactive elements, for which the radioactive isotopes of the elements are used for studying properties and chemical reactions of non-radioactive isotopes.

Radioisotopes are widely used for diagnostic or research purposes. Radioisotopes present naturally or introduced into the body emit gamma rays and, after detection and treatment of the results, provide information on the anatomy of the person and on the functioning of specific organs. When used in this way the radioisotopes are called tracers.

Radiation therapy also uses radioisotopes in the treatment of certain diseases such as cancer. Powerful sources of gamma rays are also used to sterilize medical equipment.

One of the applications of radioisotopes in biology is the study of DNA with the use of Phosphorus-32 (P-32). The stable phosphorus is replaced by P-32 and the radioactivity is used to analyze molecules and their fate.
