How is BriteVu dosed for different animals?

Apr 30, 2015 0 Comments in FAQ

The dose depends on the system or region being perfused.  For intravascular perfusion and after the blood is flushed with saline, infuse the equivalent of 30-40% volume/weight of BriteVu.  However, these are general guidelines that typically fit small animals less than 1,000 g.  See protocols for additional ideas.

For example, perfuse 150-200 cc (or ml) of BriteVu into the vasculature of a 500 gram animal. Other systems, like the respiratory system for example, have very different volumes based on the species.  BriteVu requirements are adjusted accordingly.
