NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 03, 2012) -
Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR
), an investment company with medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations, today announced the sale of a BVA-100 Blood Volume Analyzer. The Hospital that has purchased the machine is located in Arizona and has approximately 270 beds.
Dr. Joseph Feldschuh, The President and Chief Executive Officer of Daxor, said, "This sale is important news for our Company. Regulations issued by Medicare are being implemented in January 2013 which will penalize hospitals who readmit congestive heart failure patients in less than 30 days. We feel that this should provide a major incentive for hospitals to use the BVA-100 Blood Volume Analyzer to treat congestive heart failure patients."
The Board of Directors has approved payment of a dividend of $0.10 per share. The dividend will be paid on Friday, August 24th to shareholders of record on Tuesday, August 14th.
