Abstract

Here, we report a robust, versatile, compact microreactor-based system for labeling of biomolecules with metallic radioisotopes or radiometals. The microreactor exploits rapid mixing in grooved (staggered herringbones) microchannels, and efficient heat transfer in micro-incubation chambers to achieve high radiolabeling efficiencies. We demonstrate the application of the system by labeling RGD, a cancer-targeting biomolecule, with radioisotopes of copper and gallium. More significantly, the high labeling efficiencies were achieved without using excess of any reagents, thus obviating the need for subsequent purification. The reported microreactor-based system has potential for the synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals for clinical and research applications.
