Capillary electrophoresis of 99mtechnetium radiopharmaceuticals
Jankowsky, R.; Noll, B.; Johannsen, B.;
Diagnostically used 99mTc kit radiopharmaceuticals were analyzed using capillary zone electrophoresis with radioactivity detection: 99mTc-bis(bis(2-ethyloxyethyl)phosphino)ethane (99mTc-Myoview, 99mTc-Tetrofosmin), 99mTc-trans(1,2-bis(dehydro-2,2,5,5,-tetramethyl-3-furanone-4-methylene-amino)ethane)-tris(3-methoxy-1-propyl)phosphine) (99mTc-Technescan Q12, 99mTc-Furifosmin), 99mTc-methoxyisobutylisonitrile (99mTc-MIBI), 99mTc-L,L-ethylenecysteine diethylester dimer (99mTc-ECD), 99mTc-d,l-hexamethylene propyleneamine oxime (99mTc-HMPAO), 99mTc-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (99mTc-DTPA), 99mTc-ethylene hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid (99mTc-EHIDA), 99mTc-L,L-ethylenecysteine (99mTc-EC), 99mTc-mercaptoacetylglycylglycylglycine (99mTc-MAG3), 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid (99mTc-DMSA), 99mTc-methylene diphosphonate (99mTc-MDP) and 99mNaTcO4. A pressure-driven capillary zone electrophoresis was employed to detect small anions of high electrophoretic mobility and cations within one run. Effective 99mTc complex charges could be determined by a neutral internal standard. All complexes showed the expected electrophoretic behaviours in view of their charges. Pure products were obtained for the majority of the studied complexes. In the case of 99mTc-Q12, 99mTc-EHIDA and 99mTc-MDP, complex mixtures were detected. The high potential of CE for the analysis of 99mTc radiopharmaceuticals could be shown.
