What is a Polyflux dialyzer?

The Polyflux L dialyzer series is specialized for low-flux hemodialysis treatments, featuring a distinctive membrane that acts as an effective barrier to potential fluid contaminants, while still delivering high performance6.

What is high-flux dialyzers?

High-flux dialysis is defined as a β2-microglobulin clearance of over 20 ml/min (1, 2).

What are the three basic type of dialyzers?

In addition, dialyzers are internationally classified into three types: low-flux, high-flux, and protein-leaking.

What is Revaclear?

The Revaclear dialyzer series is a range of high-efficiency, high-flux dialyzers designed to enhance safety and biocompatibility for your patients, as well as optimize clearance, with a smaller surface area6.

What is the difference between high efficiency and high-flux dialyzers?

Some authors have defined high-efficiency hemodialysis as treatment in which the urea clearance rate exceeds 210 mL/min. High-flux dialysis, arbitrarily defined as a β2-microglobulin clearance of over 20 mL/min, is achieved using high-flux membranes [3,4].

What is a low flux dialyzer?

Low flux dialyzers are an option for acute and chronic dialysis where a lower rate of fluid removal (e.g., ultrafiltration coefficient) is desired. Explore our wide range of biocompatible, polysulfone dialyzers designed to meet the clinical needs of all patient types.

How many times a dialyzer can be used?

On average, it only takes 9.6 reuse dialyzers to treat one patient for one year, versus an average of 153 single-use dialyzers.

What are dialyzers made of?

The fibers are made up of polymers (synthetic resins or plastics) and the case and endcaps are made of polycarbonate plastic. The potting material that secures the fibers at both ends of the case is also a blend of synthetic resins called polyurethane. The hollow fibers are where the real work of dialysis goes on.

Why use a low flux dialyzer?

Low Flux dialyzers allow patients with a smaller surface area to achieve desired Kt/V adequacy goals with the same reliability in performance and biocompatibility as our high flux dialyzers. Additionally, our variety of available low flux dialyzers provides clinicians with options to individualize patient care.
