Xenetix® has been Guerbet's topselling product since it was first launched in 1994. Xenetix® is a non-ionic, low osmolality iodinated contrast agent indicated for whole-body imaging in adults and children. It is also indicated for conventional intravascular and cardiac imaging. Its efficacy was recently confirmed in more than 110,000 patients evaluated in the course of 2 German surveys (Petersein J., Eur. Radiol. 2003; 13: 2006-2011; Vogl T.J. RSNA 2005, p 472).The product is supplied as vials or polypropylen bags, an innovative packaging (Xenetix® in ScanBag®).
Hexabrix® is an ionic, low osmolality iodinated contrast agent whose unique anticoagulant and anti-platelet properties make it particularly suitable for interventional cardiology (AL DIERI et al. 2003, HEPTINSTALL et al. 1998). The benefits it brings during interventional surgical procedures were confirmed by a study conducted in 2005 in more than 500 patients (Le Feuvre C. et al – Cathet Cardiovasc Interv 2006). Hexabrix® has a broad range of indications in adults and children.
Oxilan® is a non-ionic, low osmolality iodinated contrast agent - registered in the USA, Turkey and Japan (under the brand name Imagenil®) - for intra-arterial and intravenous indications in conventional radiology and CT scanning. Its low viscosity makes it particularly suitable for cardiac procedures.
This ionic, high osmolality iodinated contrast agent is available over a broad range of concentrations with vascular and non-vascular indications for Telebrix Gastro® (gastrointestinal examinations) and Telebrix hystero® (hysterography).
