Abstract

This paper presents a concept of no-dialysate micro hemodialysis system and discusses water permeability of the dialysis membrane. No-dialysate micro hemodialysis system allows miniaturization of the hemodialysis system, which is mandatory for our ultimate goal of implantable dialysis systems. Water permeability of the dialysis membrane is a crucial parameter to determine the system performance. We highlighted nano and micro porosity of a poly-ether-sulfone (PES) membrane and developed water-permeable dialysis membrane. Proof-of-concept experiments of no-dialysate micro hemodialysis system were successfully conducted, and we found that the thickness of nano porous structure affected water permeability.
