To develop an electrochemical platform for synthesizing PET tracers with 18F-radiolabelled aromatic and heteroaromatic moieties via a small benchtop system that simplifies their production and makes such probes more accessible to the broader research community. The clinical potential, if successful, is improved availability of known and novel PET probes, presently not accessible due to difficulties in synthesis with conventional approaches, which will enhance disease diagnosis and management.
