Diametrics Medical (US) has acquired exclusive rights to market the Avoximeter 4000 whole-blood oximeter, manufactured by Avox Systems, in the US and Canada. San Antonio, Texas-based Avox expects to gain FDA approval shortly for the device, which it claims is the world's first portable point-of-care co-oximeter. Diametrics, which manufactures the IRMA blood gas analyser, plans to introduce the Avox device in early 1996. The Avoximeter 4000, which incorporates technology licensed from the University of Texas, provides test results in 20 seconds, uses only 50 micro l of untreated whole blood and a disposable test cartridge.
