Mo-99, Lu-177, I-131 supply update

27 January

ANSTO wishes to provide a supply update to the Australian nuclear medicine community regarding the HFR reactor outage in Petten, Netherlands.    

  • There is no impact on Australia’s supply of Tc-99m or I-131.  

  • There is no impact on ANSTO manufactured Lu-177, however, Lu-177 customers may experience supply shortages over the coming weeks where ANSTO sources back up supply from international partners that have been affected by the HFR reactor outage.    

There will be no impact on Lu-177 supply for clinical trial doses. ANSTO recommends that, where possible, non-trial patient doses be rescheduled. We are working through supply options and will communicate further information as it becomes available. ANSTO is now contacting affected customers to best manage Lu-177 supply within Australia.  

Background information:  

The HFR reactor did not resume operations as planned on 20 January. ANSTO has been working with the global nuclear medicine community to support international supply. This week, we have supplied surplus Mo-99 activity to our international partners where possible.
