Figure 3: A Chromatographic column as used in the West. In this column, molybdenum-99 is prepared as Ammonium Molybdate and adsorbed onto Alumina contained in a glass column as above. Pharmaceutical grade saline is trickled through the column and the technetium-99m comes down as Sodium pertechnetate in a sterile saline solution, ready for the manufacture of radiopharmaceuticals
