A dialyzer, also known as an “artificial kidney,” is a hemodialysis filter that removes wastes and excess fluid from the blood when a patient’s kidneys can no longer perform the task. Diacap Pro’s advances in fiber technology provide a lower comparable surface area and an increased molecule to surface contact.
“The newly developed fibers in Diacap Pro are designed to improve dialysis dose,” said Samuel Amory, Vice President at B. Braun Medical. “The Diacap Pro fibers clear blood toxins like urea and creatinine, while still retaining vital molecules like albumin. It is our newest hemodialysis product innovation, and fits well with our other products including the Dialog+® Hemodialysis System, Solcart® bicarbonate cartridge, and the AQUAboss® Water Treatment System.”
Diacap Pro is available in three distinct sizes (1.3m2, 1.6m2, 1.9m2), which address the different patient needs.
B. Braun has provided innovative products to the dialysis community for more than 35 years. Its Dialog+ Hemodialysis System incorporates leading-edge technology in dialysis, and its dialysis product line offers an array of disposable products that allow healthcare professionals to tailor treatments for their patients.
