Prior to activation, LUMINITY appears as a colour less liquid. LUMINITY needs to be ‘activated’ prior to use and this is achieved using a specific Vialmix™ device provided by the company when LUMINITY is ordered.
The Vialmix™ has a pre-defined shaking/agitation time of 45 seconds and rate of agitation, which cannot be altered. At the end of these 45 seconds, the perflutren microspheres have been created and the agent is ready for use.
