Regular permeate control – for patient’s benefit

During dialysis treatment the patient’s blood comes into contact with more than 20.000 litres of water per year. It is obvious that the chemical and microbiological quality of permeate is of utmost importance.

Current studies show that endotoxins can cause acute pyrogenic reactions and chronic inflammatory diseases.

Regular heat-disinfection of the complete ring-main system has a preventive effect on biofilm formation and meets long-term microbiological requirements.

Retrograde introduced infectious microorganisms, biofilm fragments or endotoxins can be reliably eliminated by adsorption using modern ultrafiltration membranes.

Regular monitoring of the hygienic status remains essential and must be performed and documented in accordance with the current guidelines and instructions.
