ABT Molecular Imaging, Inc. was founded by Ron and Lynda Nutt in 2006 and is located in Knoxville, Tennessee where clinical PET was developed beginning in the early 1980’s. Dr. Ronald Nutt, Chairman of the Board, and Mrs. Lynda Nutt began ABT with the vision of expanding the utilization of PET throughout the world.
This vision will be realized through the Biomarker Generator by providing researchers and clinicians on demand access to PET biomarkers. The Biomarker Generator is a small, simple, efficient mini-cyclotron isotope generator with integrated microchemistry and automated quality control to deliver PET biomarkers at the push of a button. The broader access to PET biomarkers by more people will aid in the development of new biomarker technology, advance PET imaging and contribute to realizing the potential of molecular imaging’s contribution towards personalized medicine. The Biomarker Generator is a self-contained PET biomarker lab which fits in a single 30 square meter room and can be easily integrated into an existing clinical or research setting, adjacent to clinical or research PET imaging equipment without the need for highly specialized staff.
