Rb83 can be formed as a secondary product during production

decay process    
 electron capture, positron and beta decay
Half Life    
86 days
Principal emmission
520kev and 529kev gammas,  which contribute to the generator shielding requirements.  If present it is usually in relatively low activity levels. However the long half-life means that the generator is still active   after use which may affect transport requirements
