We separated platelets from whole blood and incorporated them into In-Ill and Te-99m agents. Sn-GHA, Tropolone, Oxine (sulphate) and HMPAO were used to diffuse radionuclides into the platelets. The effects of time, temperature, PH of incubation media; volume and concentration of ionophore; and volume and activity of ln-l 13m C13 and Te-99m on labeling efficiency were studied.
