Abstract

chuv.ch Institute of Radiation Physics, 99m 99m Background: Tc-mercaptoacetyl-triglycine ( Tc-MAG3) has been used for Lausanne University Hospital, 99m dynamic renal imaging since about 30 years. Free pertechnetate ( TcO ), colloidal Lausanne, Switzerland 99m 99m 99m 99m Full list of author information is Tc (( TcO ) ), Tc-tartrate (precursor), precomplexes ( Tc-(MAG3) ) and 2 n x available at the end of the article 99m lipophilic Tc-MAG2 are the main radiochemical impurities that may occur in the preparation. The total amount of these impurities has to be identified before release of the product for patient administration to guarantee patient safety and good image quality. The European Pharmacopoeia suggests a method based on high-pressure liquid chromatography analysis in combination with a paper chromatography. This analytical method is time consuming, expensive and requires specially trained technicians. As a consequence, it is not widely applied in nuclear medicine radiopharmacies. 99m Results: We developed a simple method for radiochemical purity testing of Tc-MAG3. The method is based on thin layer chromatography with two strips to be developed in parallel. Method validation was carried out in comparison to the official methods of the companies and to the European Pharmacopoeia method. It was
