18 E. Manufacture of drug substance (contn) 3. Synthesis and purification of drug i.Synthesis and purification equipment  Description of equipment, its components, acceptance criteria, flow diagram: an attachment  Synth and purifi. Unit: make and model ii.Synthesis and purification operation Step wise description, amount of reagents, solvents, acceptable yields: an attachment iii.In process control Number of azeotropic evaps, temp for heating precursor, delivery rates, pressure for air and gases, hydrolysis temp, time for each steps, etc: a master production and control record section STOP

31 Scanner Several options, but does not necessarily affects our task at hand:  CTI-Siemens HR+  GE Advance  CTI CT/PET  GE CT/PET  Philips PET and CT/PET STOP

32 Cyclotron Is an important factor in preparing this document Several to choose from:  CTI RDS 111; 11 MeV  GE 10MeV or 18.5 MeV  IBA (various)  Others… STOP
