Dialyzer News

B. Braun (Melsungen, Germany; US base, Bethlehem, PA), a manufacturer of dialysis equipment and disposables and other medical products, has launched a new dialyzer called the Diacap Pro. The filter device, which received FDA approval in late August 2017, uses a new type of fiber designed to improve dialysis dose.

The Diacap Pro fibers clear blood toxins like urea and creatinine, while retaining molecules like albumin, and comes in three sizes (1.3 m2, 1.6 m2, and 1.9 m2) to address differing patient needs.

The new dialyzer was designed to fit with other B. Braun products, including the Dialog+ Hemodialysis System, Solcart bicarbonate cartridge, and the AQUAboss Water Treatment system.
