1. DELIVERS THE BEST PRODUCTS AND SERVICES POSSIBLE
   Radiopharmacy is staffed by registered nuclear pharmacists with advanced education, training and experience in the preparation, distribution, and pharmacology of radiopharmaceuticals. Our pharmacists are always ready to answer your questions, research requested information, and immediately respond to any problems that may arise.
   Like many other injectable drugs, radiopharmaceutical kits are capable of supporting bacterial growth; adherence to strict aseptic procedures to assure sterility is very important. Our parenteral radiopharmaceuticals are compounded using aseptic techniques inside sterile laminar flow hoods. To satisfy the highest quality standards and regulatory requirements, quality control test results on patient doses are supplied to your department daily.
   Our pharmacists also have experience writing research protocols, and procuring, preparing, and dispensing investigational radiopharmaceuticals. Utilizing Radiopharmacy can help your department offer the newest and most progressive therapies and diagnostic tests.
   Radiopharmacy, Inc.'s services are designed to allow you to offer your patients the most complete line of the highest quality products possible.
2. ENABLES THE MOST EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES
   Our services help maximize your department's overall efficiency and thus, improve patient satisfaction and your profitability.
   The widest variety of products is available for immediate delivery, so physicians do not have to wait until the following day to begin a procedure or worry about product availability.
   Dose preparation, labeling, quality control, disposal, and record keeping are performed at Radiopharmacy, so technologists are free to concentrate fully on performing studies and delivering patient care.
   Radiopharmacy, Inc. invoices only once a month, so office personnel deal with much less paperwork. Your drug cost per patient is fixed and remains constant even when your patient load changes, so administrators are able to budget costs and revenues much more accurately.
3. LOWERS RADIATION EXPOSURE
   Users of radioactive materials are required to make every reasonable effort to maintain radiation exposures as low as reasonable achievable (ALARA). Radiation exposure, and the threat of radiation exposure, to your employees, patients, and the general public is greatly reduced by utilizing Radiopharmacy. The single largest source of radiation, the 99Mo/99mTc generator, is completely eliminated from your premises. Each individual unit dose from Radiopharmacy is delivered in a leaded, leak-proof container.
4. OFFERS IMMEDIATE, SAME-DAY DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS
   It is not unusual for orders to be placed after a manufacturer's cut-off time, or for requests that a procedure be performed the same day. Same day product availability from Radiopharmacy prevents your department from causing an inconvenience for patients and referring physicians, and possibly losing business.  However, keeping extra material on hand in your nuclear medicine department for anticipated use is very expensive: ordering an extra dose for unexpected orders increases the cost of that dose by at least 20%. Radiopharmacy, Inc. stocks extra product each day so you don't have to.
5. MAINTAINS CONTINUOUS AND IMMEDIATE PHARMACY SERVICES
   The radiopharmacists and staff of Radiopharmacy are here every day of the year to immediately tend to your needs. A radiopharmacist is as close as a phone call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

6. OFFERS THE BEST PRODUCTS FROM ALL SOURCES

   By keeping active accounts with all manufacturers, Radiopharmacy is able to negotiate the lowest prices from each. No single manufacturer offers a complete line of products, or all of the best available products. Therefore, nuclear medicine departments require access to products from multiple manufacturers. Radiopharmacy, Inc. serves as the one-call source for all products.
   Using our knowledge and experience in pharmacy and nuclear medicine, we are able to offer unbiased evaluations of products and procedures. Radiopharmacy, Inc. is not owned or affiliated with any one manufacturer.

7. DISPENSES PATIENT SPECIFIC PRESCRIPTIONS
   Radiopharmacy, Inc.'s unit dose (single patient) pricing allows you to see exactly what the drug expense is for each patient. Individual patient prescriptions are invoiced at the end of each month with a summary of your monthly activity. Each individual patient dose comes with a prescription copy that facilitates approval for third party reimbursement. In contrast to buying the raw materials from a manufacturer and preparing the drugs yourself, the pharmacy dispenses individual prescriptions ready for administration to your patients. Such prescriptions are guaranteed by a registered pharmacy to meet all required federal and state standards for quality, purity, sterility, and labeling.
8. RETRIEVES RADIOACTIVE WASTE
   Radiopharmacy, Inc. retrieves all radioactive and biohazardous waste resulting from injections within your nuclear imaging department. This not only saves you the direct cost of paying someone to dispose of your radioactive and biohazardous waste, but also the more expensive indirect costs associated with staying abreast of the myriad of regulations (or hiring a consultant to do so), of storing your waste on site and paying a technologist to oversee your waste disposal program, and of assuming the full liability of storing and handling radioactive and biohazardous waste.
9. GREATLY SIMPLIFIES REQUIRED PAPERWORK
   The imposing amount of record keeping required by regulatory agencies for the receipt, handling, quality control, dispensing, and disposal of radioactive materials and pharmaceuticals is greatly simplified by using Radiopharmacy. Again, this not only saves you the direct cost of generating and maintaining all these records, but also relieves some of the liability you may incur during regulatory audits.
10. PRESCRIPTIONS ARE EXEMPT FROM SALES TAX
   Because Radiopharmacy, Inc. is a pharmacy licensed by State Boards of Pharmacy, all doses dispensed are on a prescription basis and therefore are exempt from sales tax.
11. SUPPORTS LOCAL ECONOMY AND COMMUNITY
   Since Radiopharmacy, Inc. is a locally owned and operated business, the money you spend stays in our communities. Radiopharmacy creates jobs, pays local taxes, supports other local businesses, and sponsors educational seminars and social functions for the benefit of our community. Money spent with Radiopharmacy is recycled back into our communities and back into your patients' pockets over and over again.
12. REDUCES RISK
   Risk management is an important part of your overall quality assurance and cost containment programs. Doses prepared, labeled, and dispensed by a licensed pharmacy include additional quality checks before radiopharmaceuticals are administered to your patients. Using Radiopharmacy also reduces the risk that your staff, your patients, and the public will be exposed to unnecessarily high radiation levels from stored radioactivity. In addition, Radiopharmacy's waste retrieval service greatly reduces risk the risk that anyone will be exposed to biohazardous waste generated in your nuclear medicine department. Effective risk management is essential to the clinical and financial integrity of any department.
