About Cyclopharm Limited

Cyclopharm is a radiopharmaceutical company servicing the global medical community. The Company’s mission is to provide nuclear medicine and other clinicians with the ability to improve patient care outcomes. Cyclopharm achieves this objective primarily through the provision of its core radiopharmaceutical product, Technegas (for lung imaging).

About Technegas

The Technegas technology is a structured ultra-fine dispersion of radioactive labeled carbon, produced by using dried Technetium-99m in a carbon crucible, micro furnaced for a few seconds at around 2,700oC. The resultant gas like substance is inhaled by the patient (lung ventilation) via a breathing apparatus, which then allows multiple views and tomography imaging under a gamma or single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) camera for the superior diagnosis of pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lungs).
