MXene Sorbents: A Step Toward a WAK

A sorbent tested for use in a wearable artificial kidney was able to adsorb urea with 99% efficiency in testing—twice the level removed with standard dialysate. The hemocompatible sorbent did not damage cells or reduce cell viability at the concentrations tested. A successful sorbent product will facilitate the design of a WAK. Read the abstract.
