The Daxor Blood Volume Analyzer BVA-100 System and Volumex HSA I-131 radiopharmaceutical with collection kit are designed to utilize the tracer dilution technique to provide a 98% accurate total blood volume, red cell volume, and plasma volume analysis within 90 minutes or less.
Daxor’s FDA cleared, unique patented system requires minimum site preparation. However, there are federal and state regulations, as well as Daxor protocols, that must be followed when utilizing the Blood Volume Analysis System.
