Detalo Measures Blood Volume in Humans

Detalo automatically determines total blood volume, red blood cell volume and plasma volume in humans in a rapid, safe and precise manner.

The Detalo Performance is to be used for athletes and science and is available for purchase today. The Detalo Clinical is currently going through the medical certification procedures and should be available for clinical use in 2020.

We will bring the Detalo Performance Device with us to join ESA’s Parabolic flight missions in May.

In June the first C-series versions of Detalo Performance™ for athletes is ready to launch.

Orders accepted

We are working to bring the medical version to market during 2020 for Europe as well as for US.

Spotlight on Blood Volume in Cardiovascular Diseases

2018 research from Dr. Strobeck et al. published in Journal of American College of Cardiology, indicates that blood volume guided treatment of cardiovascular diseases can reduce mortality and readmissions significantly.

According to the study, decongestion strategies for hospitalized heart failure patient today are based on a clinical assessment of volume status which often proves to be inaccurate. The study indicates that a quantitative intravascular volume metric (blood volume measurement) can support better decision.

In the study, treatment adjustments were determined by the primary MD  based upon the blood volume measurement and results were significant:

reduction in 30 days mortality rate
reduction in 365-day mortality
reduction in readmissions

Guidelines for use of blood volume guided treatment of heart failure already exists. Volume status is always of importance.

Measurement of blood volume helps patients with Chronic Heart Failure to lower frequency of volume overload and guide individualised, appropriate therapy. Research show 52% reduction in 30 day resubmission and 84% reduction in 365 day mortality.

15-30% of all hemodialysis sessions results in Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) as a consequence of reduction in blood volume and is linked to cardiovascular disease-related morbidity and mortality. Measurements of absolute blood volume is critical to correct treatment.

Anemia is common in patients with cancer and it is caused by a number of different factors. By basing diagnosis and treatments of cancer on insights from blood volume measurement we hope to help patients to a better and speedier recovery. Research is ongoing.
