Lead pig for technetium.
I've listed this set of six lead pigs under both lead and technetium out of desperation. They have no technetium in them, but they used to. They are labeled with the names of various different radio-pharmaceutical preparations used to deliver doses of Tc-99m (metastable Tc-99, an excited state of the Tc-99 nucleus with a half life of just a few hours). They are, in fact, made of pure lead, it's really only the labels that make them interesting.
