[99mTc]-ciprofloxacin is a useful radiopharmaceutical for the detection of osteoarticular prosthesis infection. We report a new preparation method based on the use of tartrate anion as an exchange ligand and tartaric acid as a source of tartrate. An improved quality control procedure is also reported that allows measuring the level of [99mTc]-tartrate present in the radiopharmaceutical preparation. Copyright © 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
