Auxiliary Shield for use with Ultra-Technekow™ DTE (technetium Tc 99m generator)

The auxiliary shield facilitates three-dimensional shielding of the Ultra-Technekow DTE generator in order to aid protection of the user from occupational exposure during the elution process. The body rings are stacked in a fashion to minimize seams for potential radiation breakthrough. The shield lid and lead plug are designed to provide additional shielding while elution and non-elution activities take place. The components of the complete auxiliary shield set include:

  • lid
  • top body ring
  • body ring
  • base plate


The auxiliary shield with all components and the generator weigh ~400 lbs. This will place a concentrated weight on a small area, and a surface with adequate load-bearing weight should be provided. Please exercise caution during assembly to avoid personal injury and damaging the components.
