NaturaLyte Liquid Acid Concentrate Materials Safety Data Sheet

NaturaLyte – 4000 Series Acid Concentrate Formulations

Citrasate contains citric acid, which forms citrate in solution, is easily metabolized in the body, and has a long and safe history of use in medicine, most notably as an anticoagulant used in the collection and storage of blood for transfusion. Citrate dialysate contains only a small fraction of the citrate concentration used to anticoagulate blood, yet evidence shows it may be associated with an increase in the delivered dose of dialysis.1 Chronic dialysis patients treated with Citrasate have demonstrated stable total and ionized serum calcium levels.2
