Lutetium-177 radionuclide is available from PerkinElmer for research and investigational use. Every lot of Lu-177 is quality tested to ensure consistent purity and activity. Unlike Y-90, Lu-177 is both a beta and a gamma emitter. Lutetium-177 is a radionuclide with exciting potential. Lu-177 is used in a similar manner as Yttrium-90 however, it has slightly different advantages:
Shorter radius of penetration than Y-90-makes Lu-177 an ideal candidate for radioimmunotherapy for smaller, soft tumors Both gamma and beta properties-enabling it to be used in imaging studies, as well as for treatment
Through its worldwide distribution capabilities, only PerkinElmer can assure delivery of this isotope to many areas of the world soon after production.
