TechneLite®

Technelite JarTechneLite® is a self-contained technetium-99m (Tc-99m) generator that provides the essential medical isotope used by hospitals and radiopharmacies to radiolabel Cardiolite® (Kit for the Preparation of Technetium Tc99m Sestamibi for Injection), NEUROLITE® (Kit for the Preparation of Technetium Tc99m Bicisate for Injection), and other radiopharmaceuticals requiring Tc-99m used in nuclear medicine imaging procedures.

LEU TechneLite®

LEU TechneLite® (Technetium Tc 99m Generator) is the first Tc-99m generator in the United States to contain at least 95 percent Low Enriched Uranium (LEU)-sourced molybdenum-99 (Mo-99), meeting the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) criteria for the incremental add-on HOPPS payment.

With the introduction of the LEU TechneLite® generator, for use with Tc-99m diagnostic nuclear imaging procedures, Lantheus fully supports the United States government’s global nuclear security strategy to encourage reliable supplies of medical radioisotopes produced from non-Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) sources.

Important Safety Information

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

The TechneLite® generator is a source of sodium pertechnetate Tc-99m for use in the preparation of FDA-approved diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals, as described in the labeling of these diagnostic radiopharmaceutical kits.

Sodium Pertechnetate Tc-99m Injection is used IN ADULTS as an agent for:

  • Thyroid Imaging
  • Salivary Gland Imaging
  • Urinary Bladder Imaging (direct isotopic cystography) for the detection of vesico-ureteral reflux.
  • Nasolacrimal Drainage System Imaging

Sodium Pertechnetate Tc-99m Injection is used IN CHILDREN as an agent for:

  • Thyroid Imaging
  • Urinary Bladder Imaging (direct isotopic cystography) for the detection of vesico-ureteral reflux.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

None Known

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Allergic reactions including anaphylaxis have been reported infrequently following the administration of Sodium Pertechnetate Tc-99m Injection.

WARNINGS

Radiation risks associated with the use of Sodium Pertechnetate Tc-99m Injection are greater in children than in adults and, in general, the younger the child, the greater the risk owing to greater absorbed radiation doses and longer life expectancy.
These greater risks should be taken firmly into account in all benefit-risk assessments involving children.  Long-term cumulative radiation exposure may be associated with an increased risk of cancer.

PRECAUTIONS

Since the eluate does not contain an antimicrobial agent, it should not be used after 12 hours from the time of TechneLite®, Technetium Tc 99m Generator, elution. After the termination of the nasolacrimal imaging procedure, blowing the nose and washing the eyes with sterile distilled water or an isotonic sodium chloride solution will further minimize the radiation dose. As in the use of any radioactive material, care should be taken to minimize radiation exposure to patients and occupational workers. Radiopharmaceuticals should be used only by physicians who are qualified by training and experience and who are licensed in the safe handling of radionuclides.
