Abstract

Four commercially available 81Rb-81mKr generators, including their elution systems, were compared. Considerable differences in useful output between the various generators were found. When a standardized elution system was used, the differences became much less. Differences in the tubing and inaccuracy of the flow meters were found to be the major causes of the original differences. The user should be aware of a loss of output that may occur when the generator is eluted with dry air.
