MITRU is dedicated to the research, development and manufacture of  radiopharmaceuticals. Radiopharmaceuticals are radioactive chemicals which are administered to patients to determine the location of (imaging) particular cells or to irradiate (therapy) particular cells in the patient’s body.

MITRU is licensed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) as a manufacturer of radiopharmaceuticals which we supply on a regular basis to hospitals and imaging centres all over Australia. Our TGA license sets us apart from in-hospital services as we are required to maintain our licensed status to continue supplying radiopharmaceuticals to imaging centres. To maintain our TGA License we undergo regular audits by the TGA and adhere to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and all guidance provided by the TGA. MITRU also participate in supplying radiopharmaceuticals for clinical trials.

MITRU is home to South Australia’s only cyclotron. The cyclotron is a particle accelerator which is designed for commercial applications. We utilise the cyclotron to produce several of the radioactive starting materials which we use to manufacture our radiopharmaceuticals.
