  • ATP-dependent mechanics of red blood cells
    Red blood cells are amazingly deformable structures able to recover their initial shape even after large deformations as when passing through tight blood capillaries. The reason for this exceptional property is found in the composition of the membrane and the membrane-cytoskeleton interaction. We
  • Medical Device Link . Design Solutions Using Microporous Hydrophobic Membranes
    ). Microporous hydrophobic membrane--shown in roll at top--is used in products such as (clockwise from left) a vented blood warmer, an in-line suction filter, a vented suction container, and a transducer protector.

  • Prions Come Under Closer Scrutiny
    Products has approved the use of Ultipor DV 50 virus filters to remove prions from Redimune immunoglobulin, which is made by ZLB Behring AG ( For blood transfusion, Pall has also developed a new filter technology that combines white blood cell reduction with prion removal in one device. The limitation
  • Can a Fluid Sensor Make Kidney Dialysis Pleasant?
    hemodialysis. Hemodialysis uses external equipment that allows the patient's blood to be pumped through a medical device (dialysis machine) equipped with a hemodialysis membrane-the artificial kidney.
  • Medical Device Link .
    Described as an alternative to traditional peristaltic technology, a hemodialysis pump applies positive and negative pressure to a flexible membrane within each pumping chamber to achieve blood flow. Renal Solutions Inc. (Warrendale, PA; ) initially fabricated the pump from a conventional

  • Medical Device Link .
    glucose monitors. The key component of such monitors is a flat, membrane-covered unit called a planar sensor (see Figure 1). Over the past few years, planar sensors have been brought into use for measuring blood gases and electrolytes, and have also been introduced in portable cartridge-based
  • I want my MVT
    Deerfield Urethane, South Deerfield, Mass. The thermoplastic-elastomer (TPE) films comfortably serve as moisture-vapor-transmission (MVT) membranes. They block dust, wind, and rain as well as blood, microbes, and viruses, but let moisture vapor, caused by perspiration, escape. MVT films protect
