Tec-Control Chromatography Systems

For radiopharmaceutical quality control. Tests the radiochemical purity of specific Tc-99m-labeled radio-pharmaceuticals.


Tec-Control Chromatography tests the radiochemical purity of specific Tc-99m-labeled radio-pharmaceuticals. The accompanying chart shows which strips and solvents are required to perform each individual test. Some solvents must be purchased separately (see Sigma-Aldrich chart) due to hazardous material shipping restrictions.

Detailed instruction manuals are packaged with each strip container, although our Radiopharmaceutical QC Procedure Manual (151-000) explains paper chromatography in greater detail.
