Syringes, Plunger, Prefilled, Blood Volume Tracer, Luer Lock
Definition : Pre-filled, small (e.g., 1 mL), and calibrated syringes that end in a Luer lock tip and that are supplied filled with a saline solution containing a specific blood albumin tracer (e.g., iodine isotope 131, I131). These syringes are specially designed (sometimes with a stop cock instead of a plunger) to inject an accurate dose of several microcuries (typically 10 to 25) through an intravenous line; they are used for blood and blood component (e.g., red cells, plasma) volume measuring from blood samples taken after the tracer injection using a semi-automated or automated analyzer.

DAXOR Corporation is an innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology company. We manufacture the BVA-100 Blood Volume Analyzer, the first instrument approved by the FDA to provide rapid direct measurement of a patient's blood volume. We believe that the BVA-100 Blood Volume Analyzer has the potential to transform therapy in a broad range of surgical and medical conditions. It is our goal, working in conjunction with hospitals and clinics, to achieve that possibility. The BVA-100 is a semi-automated Blood Volume Analyzer. It is used in conjunction with a single use diagnostic kit. It is the first FDA-approved instrument to provide rapid direct measurement of a patient's blood volume.
