  • Bioinert

    The molecules of Liquivent® (Perfluorocarbon [PFCs] Solution) are too large to be metabolized. PFCs are bioinert, immiscible with other liquids, minimally absorbed, and have no deleterious histological cellular or biochemical effects .

  • Effective

    Most liquids and solids float on top of PFCs, making removal of the foreign material and tenacious bronchial secretions easier. PFCs do not mix with water, inhaled liquids or solids.

  • Radiopaque Formulations

    OriGen supplies a pharmaceutical grade perfluorocarbon compound, PFB (Perflubron), which is radiopaque (opaque on x-ray).

  • Available in Bottles and Syringes

    Liquivent® is available in bottles and syringes ranging from 20ml to 1L. Choose the option that works best for your hospital.
