General description

Oxygen-18O2 is a naturally occurring stable isotope of oxygen. Natural abundance of 18O2 containing at least 99 atom % O-18.


18O2 isotopic labelling was employed, in conjunction with time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry, to characterize and elucidate the parts of the degradation mechanisms induced by molecular oxygen. Using 18O2 as a label, it is possible to study collagen degradation with this non-reutilized label and so avoid the large errors that are introduced by the recycling of other labels.


500 mL in Sure-Pac™
1 L quantity is packaged in a 450 mL carbon steel lecture bottle with brass CGA 110/180 valve. Nominal gas pressure at 21ºC is 20 psig for 1 L. This pressure is slightly above atmospheric pressure. Care must be taken when extracting this product from the cylinder.
All gas volumes are quoted at Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP) and not at Normal Temperature and Pressure (NTP). One STP Liter is 7.7% more gas than one NTP Liter.

Recommended products

Brass hose adapter Z146811 or brass body mini gas regulator Z513539 is recommended for 500 mL Sure/Pac cylinder (U.S only). For 1 L cylinder, either stainless steel control valve Z146951 or Z187224 is recommended.

Labeled isotopes used as target materials in imaging have provided insights into the various mechanisms of human physiology and have lead to treatments for diseases. Water-18O is used for the production of 18F radionuclides, such as 18FDG (Fluoro-deoxyglucose). 18FDG used in PET and with other imaging technologies, such as CT/SPECT, has led to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of diseases, including lung, liver, and brain tumors, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s.
