Lantheus Medical Imaging Introduces Low-Enriched Uranium (LEU) TechneLite Generator
NORTH BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc., a global leader in developing, manufacturing and distributing innovative diagnostic imaging agents, today announced that the Company has added a Low-Enriched Uranium (LEU) TechneLite® (Technetium Tc 99m Generator) generator to the Company’s nuclear imaging product portfolio. Lantheus’ LEU TechneLite® generator is the first technetium-99m (Tc-99m) generator in the United States that contains molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) produced from at least 95 percent LEU. With greater access to LEU Mo-99 through its supply chain diversification strategy, Lantheus can now move closer to its goal of eventually eliminating Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU)-sourced Mo-99 from its supply chain. Lantheus’ first LEU TechneLite® generator was shipped on January 7, 2013.
