Cyclopharm unveils new nuclear medicine technology

Cyclopharm (ASX: CYC) is heading for regulatory approvals for its newly developed proprietary patented technology, Ultralute, that will enable nuclear medicine departments to dramatically improve their operating efficiencies and health outcomes for patients.

The Ultralute technology extends the useful life of Mollybdenum-99 generators, the world’s most common nuclear medicine radioisotope and a precursor to the Technetium-99m (Tc-99m) isotope, by up to an additional 50%.

Tc-99m is the primary isotope used in diagnostic imaging throughout the world accounting for about 80% of all procedures performed in nuclear medicine today.

Applications include cardiac, bone, liver, brain, renal and lung imaging.

Initial testing and prototype designs of the Ultralute technology have provided highly positive results.

Cyclopharm is now moving toward the regulatory approval process and at the same time has entered into discussions with potential commercial partners.

The company had around A$2.3 million in cash at the end of December 2012.

    Interesting as there is going to be a massive shortage of Mo-99 in a few years time when production reactors shut down in Canada - this would allow the little Mo-99 that would be produced to go around further. BTW - The image is of a CT - nothing to do with Mo-99
