68Germanium/68Gallium generator, approved in 13 European countries. When accompanied by a cold kit – for example SomaKit TOC®, the Gallium-68 isotope (obtained from the generator) is used in oncology for the PET (Positron Emission Tomography) diagnosis imaging of neuroendocrine cancers, particularly difficult to detect at the early stage.
SomaKit TOC is the first ever approved kit for preparation of a PET radiopharmaceutical.
After radiolabelling with gallium (68Ga) chloride solution, the solution of gallium (68Ga) edotreotide obtained is indicated for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging of somatostatin receptor overexpression in adult patients with confirmed or suspected well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NET) for localizing primary tumours and their metastases.
Gallium (68Ga) edotreotide binds to somatostatin receptors. In vitro, this radiopharmaceutical binds with high affinity mainly to SSTR2 but also, to a lesser extent, to SSTR5.
The kit reduce the preparation time substantially as well as the time for the quality control compared to production of Ga-68 Dotatoc.
SomaKit TOC was approved by the European Medicines Agency in December 2016 and was placed on the Scandinavian market the 1st of September 2017.

Kit for the preparation of 99mTc-MIBI used for intravenous injection after radiolabelling with sodium 99mTc pertechnetate solution and is indicated for:
This is a kit for the preparation of a radioactive solution for injection. After radiolabelling with sodium pertechnetate( 99mTc) solution, the solution of technetium-( 99mTc) mertiatide, is used for the evaluation of nephrological and urological disorders in particular for the study of function, morphology and perfusion of the kidneys and characterisation of urinary outflow.
Preparation time approximately15 minutes.
No boiling needed on preparation of this product.
Used for scintigraphic imaging examination (by means of a radioactive tracer and a special camera) and assessment of
Preparation time approximately 10 minutes.
Kit for the preparation of 99mTc-TEKTROTYD used for intravenous injection after radiolabelling with sodium 99mTc pertechnetate solution and is indicated for diagnostics of pathological lesions in which somatostatin receptors are overexpressed (particularly subtype 2 and, to a lesser extent, subtypes 3 and 5).
In particular, these are:
