Alliance Medical has five fully licensed radiopharmaceutical production units (RPUs) that supply radiopharmaceuticals to PET imaging centres across the UK. We have the UK's largest network of PET RPUs ensuring reliability of supply to our customers. Our facilities at Keele, Preston and Sutton trade as Alliance Medical Radiopharmacy Ltd, our Guildford facility as Alliance Medical Molecular Imaging Ltd, and our Dinnington facility as Alliance Medical Radiopharmacy Dinnington Ltd.

Because of the short half-life (~2hrs) of the most commonly used radiopharmaceutical, 18F-Fludeoxyglucose, it is necessary to have this product manufactured relatively close to the point of usage, and ideally within 3 hours of the ‘consuming’ hospital or patient.


Our Keele RPU was commissioned and licensed in 2005 and now routinely supplies radiopharmaceuticals to PET imaging centres in the North, Midlands, and Wales.
