Abstract  

A method for preparing99mTc-citrate complex, using instantly formed cuprous ions for the reduction of pertechnetate is described. The labelling kinetics, formation rate and stability of99mTc-Cu-citrate complex were studied. Gel filtration using column scanning technique has been found to be a reliable and unique tool for determining the amount of99mTc-fractions as a function of time in the preparation. The kidney uptake and excretion characteristics suggest a potential usefulness of99mTc-Cu-citrate complex for renal function studies. The safety measures for the amount of the complex to be injected in man have been estimated.
