Why LEU Tc-99m?

The American Medical Isotope Production Act signed by President Obama was signed in 2013. It is part of a multi-nation effort to reduce the use of “weapons grade” HEU. The Act along with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announcement for additional reimbursement for non-HEU diagnostic doses is a push for our industry to utilize LEU Tc-99m doses.

Uranium is used in the production of molybdenum (M0-99) which is the parent isotope of technetium (Tc-99), used in millions of diagnostic procedures annually. The United States has no domestic facilities for Mo-99. The Safari reactor in South Africa and the Opal reactor in Australia are the only facilities that can supply LEU Tc-99m-derived raw product.

HEU vs. LEU TechneLite®: Fact vs. Fiction

MYTH: LEU-sourced Mo-99 is not equivalent to HEU-sourced Mo-99.

FACT: LEU and HEU-sourced Mo-99 are equivalent in performance and use as recognized by FDA approval of LEU-produced Mo-99 generators. Lantheus’ TechneLite® generators, using a blend of HEU and LEU, were approved by the FDA for commercial use in 2010 and have been routinely used in the U.S. market since 2011. The only difference between the LEU TechneLite® generator and the standard TechneLite® generator is that LEU TechneLite® is produced using Mo-99 sourced from at least 95 percent LEU instead of HEU. Lantheus receives LEU-sourced Mo-99 from NTP Radioisotopes and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO).

Tc99m GENERATORS Suppliers


The RadioGenix® System is a technetium Tc-99m generator used to produce Sodium Pertechnetate Tc 99m Injection, USP. RadioGenix is an innovative, high tech isotope separation platform, for use in producing the widely used medical radioisotope technetium-99m (Tc-99m) from non-uranium produced molybdenum-99 (Mo-99). The RadioGenix® System is the first and only non-uranium based process for production of technetium-99m (Tc-99m) in the United States in more than 25 years.

Low Residual Syringes

For years we have urged our syringe suppliers to come up with a syringe lubricant that would not hold residual radioactivity. Our independent studies have shown some nuclear doses had upwards of 10mCi RESIDUAL left in the syringe. We have finally sourced sterile 3mL and 5mL syringes that cut the residual radioactivity by more than 4 times the BD brand! This allows our end user to get the most out of their nuclear medicine doses insuring accuracy when dosing your patients. We are about bringing efficiency to your department. You can be assured residual activity will no longer be a problem from our pharmacy!
