1988: Multi-Layered Desiccant Sponges

Medi-RayTM looked for solutions to potential difficulties in its entire process once again, and research and development turned to shipping in 1988, when an R & D program was instituted to deal with the absorption of radioactive pharmaceuticals while they were in shipment. By the latter part of the year, this development program had created a breakthrough, multi-layered desiccant sponge material that met the stringent approval requirements set by Medi-RayTM‘s health physicists. This remarkable desiccant material was quickly adopted and utilized as an important safety component in Medi-RayTM‘s various radiopharmaceutical packaging systems.
