Definition : Dialyzers designed to perform in-vitro separation of molecules in a laboratory sample solution according to the difference in their rates of diffusion through a semi-permeable membrane. These dialyzers typically consist of three basic components: A container for the solution to be dialyzed (e.g., a multi-well cell), a container for the solution that performs the dialysis (i.e., dialysate);, and a semi-permeable membrane separating them. Laboratory dialyzers are used in clinical laboratories for several procedures such as electrophoresis and chromatography sample preparation, especially when concentration of the samples (e.g., cerebrospinal fluid, serum, urine) are required; for salt and/or detergent removal; and in buffer exchange.
