Kits were developed-for the sterile labelling of phytate with99mTc. The effect of molar ratio of phytate to stannous chloride, pH, dilution of the Sn-phytate with99mTc-generator eluate, time of incubation, the shelf life of99mTc-phytate and the storage time of Sn-phytate on the labelling yield of phytate with99mTc was investigated using paper chromatography and gel chromatography column scanning method (GCS). Organ distribution was performed in rabbits and mice. Excellent human liver scans were obtained.
