Tungsten generator shields embodies a radioactive core supplied with an isotope, known molybdenum 99, that decomposes the daughter isotope, technetium 99m. This radioactive fluid is accumulated and disintegrated with sodium chloride, mixed with an array of diagnostic agents, and insinuated into patients. The radioactive substance gathers in the fixed parts of the body and can be seen by a gamma camera. The parent molybdenum 99 possesses a 2.75-day half-life, while the daughter isotope contains a half-life of only 6 hours, decreasing its time in the body.
Applied for the on-site transfoprmation of saline solutions into addministrable dosages of radiopharmaceuticals, Medi-RayTM's tungsten heavy alloy generator shields give both the effectiveness and the safety that is our forte.
Since marketing of its first Technetium 99 generator in 1972, Medi-RayTM has gone on becoming perfect with its tungsten heavy alloy generator shields designs and has been recognized by world leaders in the engineering of Technetium99 generators.
Our physicists and engineers hold more than 35 years of experience and expertise in designing and devloping the tungsten generator shields solutions to cater to one's needs.
Provided with brass-threaded and knurled closures, viewing windows of leaded glass, and our ergonomic non-slippery design and finish, these tungsten generator shields offer the optimal solution for “milking” the generators.
