US-based dialysis products manufacturer NxStage Medical has introduced new Streamline Express dialyzer for the in-center hemodialysis market.
The new dialyzer includes pre-attached blood tubing set, which allows in reducing the amount of labor required for machine set-ups and the number of touch point contamination sites.
Streamline Express aggregates the NxStage dialyzer and Medisystems’ bloodline Streamline. It has been developed to eliminate blood-air interfaces that may reduce the risk of clotting.
NxStage Medical president Joe Turk said: "We continue to innovate and add value for our Medisystems in-center customers.
"We are very excited about the potential for Streamline Express to deliver improved efficiency for providers and, most importantly, high clearances for patients."
The Streamline Express has been manufactured by using polyethersulfone membranes and can be used with Fresenius 2008 and B. Braun hemodialysis machines.
NxStage Medical develops and markets products for the treatment of ESRD and acute kidney failure.
