Zecotek gains Chinese patent rights for LFS scintillation material
Zecotek Imaging Systems Singapore, a wholly owned subsidiary of Zecotek Photonics, has received notification of Grant of Patent Rights from the Chinese Patent Office for its LFS scintillation material.

The company has developed and patented a new class of scintillation materials aimed directly at the next generation of PET, PET-CT and PET-MRI medical imaging scanners. When combined with MAPD solid-state photo detectors, the new scintillation materials provide for scanning devices with higher resolution, Zecotek said.

Other medical applications for LFS scintillation material are in micro-PET detectors, widely used in drug research and in gamma cameras used for breast and prostate examinations.
