Other solutes

  • Today, 80,000 people suffering from kidney failure are treated with peritoneal dialysis. The dialysate contained in bags allows toxic waste to be removed from the blood through filtering. This method relieves patients of the need to go to specialised institutions.
  • Perfusion solutes such as glucose and Sodium Chloride are used in cases of extracellular dehydration and hypovolemia and can also be used to administer medical treatment.
  • Several solutions can be used when collecting blood donations.
    • Anticoagulant solutions prevent the blood from coagulating and facilitate separation of the different cells that make up the blood.
    • Washing solutions facilitate rinsing the erythrocytes (red blood cells).

The suitable containers for these categories of products are PVC and PP bags.
