GE Healthcare is introducing new tracers to the FASTlab multi-tracer platform, an advanced PET chemistry system on which the company is also developing PET proprietary agents
.

FASTlab offers a number of significant enhancements to address the ever-evolving challenges of tracer production.


Investing in Invention


“The only way we can help clinicians beat cancer is to give them the tools to find it earlier, stage it better, and quantitatively measure response to therapy,” said GE Vice President and GE Healthcare Chief Technology Officer Mike Harsh, who oversees GE Healthcare’s global research and development efforts.
“The integration of GE Healthcare’s expertise in imaging, analytics, diagnostics, cellular analysis, and healthcare IT is helping create technologies and solutions that can be used in a rural developing country or in a modern urban hospital.”

The investment will focus on developing new oncology solutions and build on advanced technologies and research already in progress.

New biomarkers:
A leader in the fast-growing in vitro molecular diagnostic sector, GE’s Clarient business provides diagnostic tests that pathologists and oncologists use to understand the nature of a cancer.

Clarient is investigating a new biomarker, TLE3, to identify patients who will not respond to Taxane. The goal of this test is to help clinicians exclude those patients from this therapy who are least likely to benefit, thus saving them needless exposure to serious side effects. TLE3 is being developed for breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer by GE Clarient. This will potentially save healthcare systems millions of dollars each year, not to mention the benefits to patient care. Our hope is to have these tests ready for market launch in 2013.

Molecular pathology:
GE Global Research scientists are working on an exclusive cancer diagnostic technology that may give a clearer picture of pathways driving specific tumors. This may lead to more effective, personalized treatment recommendations. Called multiplexing, the technology could allow pathologists to conduct more than 50 different stains on a single tissue section.

Cancer research:
GE’s innovative technologies for Life Science research are used in cancer research laboratories worldwide to advance understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind cancer. GE Healthcare’s cellular and sub-cellular imaging technologies, such as the IN Cell 6000 and Applied Precision’s super-resolution microscopes, are central to many areas of cancer research including drug discovery and biomarker research.

Biopharmaceutical manufacturing:
GE’s world-class biotechnology products and services are used in the manufacture of the majority of FDA-approved biopharmaceuticals and are important for developing new and targeted cancer therapies.

Hyperpolarizer:
In collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), GE Healthcare and GE Global Research are developing new C13-based agents for metabolic imaging. University researchers have just announced groundbreaking results from a study of prostate cancer utilizing GE's C13 technology, where real-time metabolic imaging of a human patient was conducted for the first time. A member of the UCSF research team describes it as a groundbreaking approach to understanding the precise margins of a tumor, how fast the tumor is growing and how well it responds to treatment.

Connected oncology workflow:
MD Connect is a new, innovative thin-client solution designed for oncology that addresses the need for a seamless workflow from scan to plan through monitoring treatment effectiveness. MD Connect helps improve productivity across the cancer care continuum. Powered by the GE AW Server, it enables plug-and-play access via virtually any networked computer to the complete suite of oncology applications from any location or department. MD Connect integrates with the Eclipse™ treatment planning platform from Varian Medical Systems, all on one desktop and other DICOM-based treatment planning platforms.
