TC-99m Generator Supply Issue

Wednesday 03, Feb 2021

UPDATE: TC-99m Generator Supply

ANSTO has experienced an equipment failure impacting Tc-99m Generator delivery from Thursday 4 February.

The equipment piece causing the disrupt is an autoclave, which provides terminal sterilisation of the Tc-99m column. It is critical in producing a sterile product. 

While ANSTO replaces the autoclave, we anticipate there will be between a one to five-day delay in Generator delivery depending on ordering patterns. We apologise for the disruption this causes our customers and patients, and we aim to be back in production as soon as it is safe to do so.

Customer Service is contacting customers impacted by this disruption directly. ANSTO will provide a further update on Tc-99m Generator production status on Friday 5 February.
