Molybdenum-99 Fission Radiochemical
Sodium Molybdate (Mo-99) (fission)
Half-Life: 66 hours
Molybdenum-99 is used to manufacture technetium-99m generators. Technetium-99m is the most widely used isotope in nuclear medicine. Technetium-99m’s short half-life of 6 hours and the energy emitted (140 keV) make it an ideal imaging agent. Nordion has been a reliable supplier of molybdenum-99 to the nuclear medicine community for over 40 years.
