bibag On-line Dry Bicarbonate

The bibag® system of pre-filled, dry bicarbonate concentrate bags provides a lightweight, streamlined alternative to liquid bicarbonate jugs.

Bicarbonate Made Easy

When the bibag disposable is secured to the bibag connector on the Fresenius Medical Care 2008T hemodialysis machine or the 2008K@home, the sodium bicarbonate powder is automatically mixed with water producing a saturated solution. This saturated solution is then proportioned with water and acid to achieve the prescribed dialysate.

Hygienic Delivery of Bicarbonate

Dissolves directly at the machine to reduce the risk of contamination and bacterial growth*

Convenient Handling with Lightweight Packaging

Removes strain associated with lifting heavy liquid bicarbonate bottles

Easy Top Connectology

Eliminates dripping on the floor when disconnected compared to other cartridges

Less Storage and Preparation Space

Up to five times the number of treatments per box compared to one case of FMCNA liquid bicarbonate

Two Flexible Bag Sizes

650 g and 900 g bags provide the right amount of bicarbonate for an efficient treatment

Environmentally-friendly with less waste

Flexible, recyclable bag may reduce waste costs

*When mixed with water that meets current ANSI/AAMI RD62, Ph Eur or ISO 13959

bibag On-line Bicarbonate Formulations

How long will bibag last during a treatment? Table 1 provides total estimated run times (including any setup time and potential pre-treatment delays) to complete a treatment with one 650 g bag. Table 2 provides the same information using one 900 g bag.

*Run times are estimates and may vary per unit protocol. Run times include estimated preparation and treatment time. Highlighted run times indicate 10+ hours of treatment time.

Diasafe filters

DIASAFE Plus Filter

Filtering Dialysate Beyond AAMI Standards1

  • Reduces the bacteria and endotoxin levels in dialysate
  • Integrated Fresenius Polysulfone® dialysate
  • Excellent endotoxin barrier
  • High molecular weight microorganisms cannot cross membrane
  • Small lipopolysaccharides (LPS) or non-LPS fragment retention resulting from adsorption
  • DIAFIX™ Lock System external mounting system for simple, hygienic filter exchange
  • Automatic DIASAFE Plus filter test after each chemical disinfection
