Description of key information

Perfluorocarbons are extremely stable and have no toxicity. They have been used in numerous medical applications, and various studies have been performed that show they are readily removed from the body unmodified. For octafluoropropane, this process is especially fast, with a half-life of twenty minutes in the human body.

For this reason we believe test is unnecessary.
