Dialyzer Reprocessing Units
Definition : Automated equipment designed for rinsing, cleaning, and resterilizing (i.e., reprocessing) hemodialysis dialyzers before reuse. Following dialysis, this equipment performs a cycle that includes water rinsing; removing blood, fibrin, and/or other blood components deposited on the dialyzer membrane with a cleaning agent (e.g., hydrogen peroxide); and finally resterilizing, typically with a solution of formaldehyde.
