Tc-99m Generator Advisory
Friday Jan 10, 2020 15:00hrs
ANSTO have advised of a relatively minor production failure in 35 generators overnight. It was in a batch that failed a quality check. This will mean that these generators, which should have been delivered on Monday, will now not be replaced until Thursday. As a consequence, supplies may be restricted from Monday-Wednesday this week.
In addition, the fires around the country have caused some delays causing some sites to continue to use an older generator. These sites will be given highest priority for a replacement generator.
Any sites concerned about bookings for next week should get in touch with their radiopharmaceutical suppliers.
