Implantable microdialysis without dialysate fluid – in rats
What if we could implant an artificial kidney that did not require dialysate fluid? Researchers have developed a microdialysis system using microfluidic channels and nanoporous membranes, and tested it in rats with kidney failure. Filtrate was successfully collected with no blood leaks in the system, and the levels of creatinine in their blood was significantly reduced.
