Our Story

Because prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment must advance


Since its founding in 2014, Blue Earth Diagnostics has been focused on addressing unmet needs in prostate cancer.

While there have been many advances in screening, diagnosis, and management in recent years, prostate cancer remains a leading cause of new cancer cases in men in the United States.1,2 Various diagnostic imaging agents are utilized throughout the continuum of care.3-6 However, conventional imaging techniques have many limitations when it comes to prostate cancer identification and localization.6-13 Greater imaging accuracy is needed, at the earliest possible stage of disease and throughout the care continuum, to optimize therapeutic decision-making.

Blue Earth Diagnostics is unlocking the potential of radiopharmaceutical technology with the goal of changing the future of prostate cancer care.

in innovation

Blue Earth Diagnostics is an established leader in the development of novel positron emission tomography (PET) imaging agents to inform clinical management decisions with the goal of positively impacting overall outcomes for patients with prostate cancer.


We apply our extensive experience and innovative technology to explore promising new radiopharmaceutical compounds for their diagnostic and therapeutic potential with the goal of truly changing the future of prostate cancer.

Advancing research

Our Investigator-Initiated Trials are managed by qualified independent medical researchers who have full responsibility for the study and assume the obligations of a sponsor—through proposal development, protocol finalization, study conduct and analysis, and dissemination of results.

Blue Earth Diagnostics partners with world-renowned research institutions to develop and study promising compounds with the potential to be next-generation solutions for patients with prostate cancer.

Some of our research alliances include:

Expanding access to radiopharmaceuticals

Blue Earth Diagnostics works with PETNET Solutions Inc., a Siemens Healthineers company, for commercial manufacturing and distribution to make products available to imaging centers throughout the United States.

Our work with advocacy and community outreach organizations

Patients and caregivers are at the heart of all that we do. We partner with and support organizations who share our commitment to improve the lives of patients with prostate cancer.
