DraxImage brings production in-house

Radiopharmaceutical developer Draxis Health said that its DraxImage medical imaging subsidiary has received FDA approval to manufacture the company’s lyophilized products at an in-house facility in Kirkland, Quebec. The move will enable DraxImage to replace an outside manufacturer, thus saving $700,000 (U.S.) a year in outsourcing costs.

The DraxImage products are labeled at the site of use with technetium, and are used in kidney, lung, bone, and brain scans. Shipments of DTPA, the first of the products covered by the FDA approval, began in January.
