The Spectra Optia system simplifies the operator’s work and makes it easy to complete procedures.
Enhance Operator Comfort and Patient Safety
The Spectra Optias system provides an efficient TPE procedure time while maintaining procedural safety limits, allowing operators to maximize the time with patients and improve the patient experience.
Flow rates up to 142 mL/min can be used while maintaining procedure efficiency.5 For a smaller patient, a flow rate of 5 mL/min or less can be used. This adapts to the operator’s needs and the patient’s condition.
When tailoring a procedure for any patient, operators appreciate the flexibility of the multiple venous access options that can be used with the Spectra Optia system, including:

1Timing study based on internal laboratory time studies using highly trained operators. Time is approximate and results may vary depending on operator experience. Data on file.
2Data on file; encompasses data from more than 40,000 procedures.
3The Spectra Optia system has safety limits to ensure patient safety during the procedure. Those safety limits include, but are not limited to, AC infusion rate limits, fluid balance limits and pump flow rate limits.
