A new custom-made Biological Safety Cabinet for Sheffield PET-MRI facility

29th July 2021

Last year Bartec and Raditech completed an installation of a custom-made Biological Safety Cabinet and lead-lined furniture at the new Sheffield PET-MRI facility.

The Sheffield PET-MRI facility is the UK’s 8th and Yorkshire’s only PET-MRI facility. It is set in a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility that is attached to the existing University of Sheffield MRI unit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Read more about it here

A new dispensing workstation with built-in counters, dose calibrator and sharps bin insert shield

The cabinet was installed in the dispensing laboratory, located in the new facility at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. It consisted of a dispensing workstation designed to protect both the operator and the product, complete with integrated shielding, built-in dose calibrator and waste disposal. Shielded storage safes and bench top castles were also installed to the surrounding bench space in this laboratory.

From design to install: how our product specialists help meet your requirements

Bartec product specialists have previously worked in nuclear medicine and PET departments for a combined total of over 40 years before joining Bartec, so they know that different room sizes and layouts require custom-made design and attention to detail.

Bartec works closely with manufacturing partners Raditech to ensure end-users are involved in every step of the journey, from design, to manufacture, to installation. This level of cooperation allows the end-user to truly make the most of the space available in their department and be fully involved in the process.

Andy Scott at Royal Hallamshire Hospital, said: “My colleague and I (Phillip Hillel, Consultant Scientist) were able to visit the manufacturer’s facility (pre-COVID) and provide more detail on where we wanted specific things, for example where we wanted the Capintec dose calibrator and the size of the shielding.”
