We have developed an efficient method and an automated synthetic system for the preparation of highly concentrated 188Re-MAG3. Routine production of 188Re-MAG3 for use in intracoronary radiation therapy was performed by compressed air driven semi-automated shielded system. 188Re-MAG3 was prepared with a commercial kit and reducing agents, purified and concentrated by C18 Sep-Pak cartridges to desired radioactivity and volume. Using this automated system, reproducible radiolabeling yields of 80-85% were obtained.
