  • Improved system mobility A compact and stable design, including a collapsible monitor and IV pole, allows operators to easily move and store the system

Spend more time with patients, less time with technology:

  • Focus on patient comfort and safety Optimized fluid balance, customized anticoagulant infusion management and low extracorporeal volume tubing set
  • Automated Interface Management Perform real-time interface monitoring, interpretation and adjustment for flexible procedural control
  • Intuitive touch screen and Graphical User Interface display Access procedure data quickly and easily with fewer manual calculations
  • Efficient screen navigation  Retrieve data for the right information, at the right time, in the right place

The Spectra Optia Apheresis System is a transportable therapeutic apheresis system that uses continuous flow centrifugation and optical detection technology (Automated Interface Management or AIM system). This advanced system offers operator choice and precision, and enables operators to perform a wide variety of procedures on one platform.

Intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI):
  • Simplifies screen navigation by presenting important procedural information all at once, at the right time
  • Provides simple data entry, enabling operator to enter data directly without manual calculations
Convenient data management:
  • Easily store and retrieve data
  • Quickly view information in the reports screen
  • Print or export procedure data to a computer
Automated Interface Management (AIM):
  • Performs real-time interface monitoring, interpretation and adjustment while retaining operator control capabilities
    • Monitors the interface position and thickness of separated blood components
    • Interprets interface information using unique optical detection software
    • Adjusts the pumps and valves to manage the interface position and efficiently remove targeted components
Tubing set versatility:
  • Ability to perform multiple procedures on one tubing set type that:
    • Minimizes operator training, errors and handling
    • Reduces inventory cost and storage space
    • Offers low tubing set volume and low total blood volume (TBV) applications  
Protocols on the Spectra Optia system available in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and select areas of Asia
