Environment Agency Briefing on Technetium 99m supply

The Environment Agency has produced a new briefing note in relation to the ongoing shortage of Technetium 99m generators. This confirms their previously published enforcement position but indicates that if permanent or semi permanent changes to deliveries are put in place then users should obtain appropriate variations to their registrations.

Molybdenum supply letter from Dr Gill Vivian - 16th October 2009

Dear Colleagues,

There are currently two substantial problems with Molybdenum supply:

  • One of our licensed distributors of radio-isotopes have gone into liquidation resulting in difficulty in transporting radiopharmaceuticals and generators this weekend;
  • GE are experiencing particular problems with generators this week.

Please let us know immediately of any problems you are facing this week.

We would also like you to include information on your current waiting lists and activity position as a national snapshot.

Kind regards
Dr Gill Vivian
President, British Nuclear Medicine Society.
