Lantheus Medical Imaging has received additional supplies of molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) for its TechneLite generator as the result of a recent agreement between the Institute for Radioelements, Fleurus, Belgium, and the Nuclear Research Institute, Rez, Czech Republic.

The Czech Nuclear Research Institute’s LVR-15 research reactor, located near Prague, is the latest addition to the global supply chain for medical isotopes after reactors in Canada and the Netherlands went offline undergoing repairs.

The North Billerica, Mass.-based Lantheus said it has gained FDA approval for use of this new material and has already distributed it in the U.S.
