Discover the benefits of an integrated HD system

At Baxter, we understand that not two clinics are the same and as a result, we aim to design total renal solutions that can deliver the right therapy, at the right time, for the right care setting. As an integrated HD system the AK 98 system is a key component to achieving this objective. As an integrated solution it may help you find the balance between patient outcomes and operational efficiency.

The Polyflux Dialyzer

The versatile design of the Polyflux dialyzers helps improve solute clearance for diverse patient needs

  • Effective removal of middle molecules such as b2m and minimal loss of essential proteins throughout dialysis1-4
  • The dialyzers are designed to minimize the risk of clotting5
  • POLYAMIX membrane is designed for endotoxin retention5-7
The Revaclear Dialyzer

The precise and carefully engineered membrane aids retention of essential proteins, delivers high performance and effective treatments, and is designed for enhanced biocompatibility1,2

  • Options can meet the majority of patients’ clearance needs3-5
  • Effectively clears small and middle molecules3,6,7
  • Reduced priming and rinseback volume may minimize the potential risk of sodium loading7-9*
  • * Compared to a larger dialyzer

HDx therapy enabled by
the THERANOVA dialyzer

HDx achieved through membrane innovation

  • Markedly greater clearances and interdialytic reduction ratios than regular HD
    — at ordinary blood flow rates1
  • Similar to greater removal in comparison to high-volume HDF1
  • Albumin removal limited to between 1 and 4 grams1

HDx — Performance

  • Higher permeability1
  • Enhanced selectivity by size exclusion3,4
  • A step closer to the natural kidney1

High-quality blood tubing sets help to meet your individual clinic and patient needs1

  • DEHP free and gamma sterilized blood tubing available
  • Color-coded connectors
  • All treatment modalities available, HD, SN and low body weight

SoftPac Citrate is an acetate-free concentrate with all the beneficial properties of citrate

  • Improved tolerance to treatment 1-8
  • Improved acid-base status 1,9
  • Less thrombogenic dialysis 1,10,11
The u9000 Ultrafilter

Endotoxin-retention filter designed for producing ultrapure dialysis fluid with safe and simple blood control.

  • Central and essential step for preparation of ultrapure dialysis fluid – recommended by European Best Practice Guidelines36
  • High-performance membrane with endotoxin-retention properties37
  • Use of ultrapure dialysis fluid reduces erythropoietin resistance38

Essential component of a system designed for ultrapure dialysis fluid to avoid treatment-related inflammation1-5

  • The convenience of bicarbonate powder
  • Easy to use
  • The all-purpose bicarbonate cartridge

With CleanCart A and CleanCart C cartridges, regular dialysis machine maintenance and disinfection assure proper dialysis machine function and requires less intensive machine operation from clinical staff

  • Less space for storage and less heavy lifting for staff compared to liquid disinfectant
  • Removes organic deposits, fats and proteins with weekly use of CleanCart A cartridge1
  • Removes precipitated calcium and magnesium salts with daily use of CleanCart C cartridge1
The CWP 800 System

The CWP 800 system provides full heat disinfection with optimized running cost

  • Reverse Osmosis unit with high performing membranes
  • Full heat disinfection to reduce formation of biofilm1,2
  • No need for chemical agents
  • Optimized running cost3
Simple and efficient water purification

The WRO 300 H reverse osmosis system is a powerful water purification unit for single hemodialysis patient operation

  • Automated procedures and diagnostics minimize patient and caregiver workflow
  • Compact, easy to handle and operate with low noise levels
  • Chemical disinfection
  • Automated shut-off at completion of disinfection
