Nephros Challenge Ending Soon
In September 2015, the Company announced the Nephros Challenge, a program offering a money-back guarantee to encourage dialysis clinics to evaluate the performance improvement potential from using Nephros ultrafilters. The ultrafilters are used on the water and bicarbonate concentrate lines which feed into a hemodialysis machine. The ultrafilters retain particles as small as five nanometers (5nm), preventing bacteria, viruses and endotoxins from entering the machine. Nephros’ proprietary filter fiber provides superior protection and enables a five log reduction in levels of endotoxin, which is a key contributor to vascular inflammation in dialysis patients. Nephros ultrafilters are FDA 510(k) cleared for a 12-month product life when used in dialysis clinics.
The Nephros Challenge program continues until March 31, 2016. For dialysis clinics that wish to enroll in the Nephros Challenge before the promotion ends, they can contact their water system provider or contact Nephros at TheChallenge@Nephros.com.
