Feasibility study of sublimation type $$^{99m}$$Tc master-milker was carried out as a $$^{99}$$Mo/$$^{99m}$$T production development with the JMTR. As the feasibility study, the experimental equipment for sublimation method and wet method with PZC based $$^{99m}$$Tc solution were tentatively manufactured, and their properties as the master-milker were investigated by comparing two methods with each other. As a result, it was found that the $$^{99m}$$Tc recovery rate and process time of the sublimation method were about 80% and 1.5 hour, respectively, and the similar values were observed with the wet method. Superior points of the sublimation method are easier operation and reusability of the used MoO$$_{3}$$ comparing with the wet method. On the other hand, disadvantageous point is that the $$^{99m}$$Tc recovery rate decreases with the increase of treating amount of MoO$$_{3}$$.
