Fresenius Medical Care gets FDA approval for Biofine® PD solution bags

Fresenius Medical Care North America announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved DELFLEX® peritoneal dialysis solutions in Biofine®, an innovative bag material. The milestone marks another important step in the company's commitment to grow home dialysis through new and improved products. Biofine material generates less waste and is PVC-free, to the benefit of the environment. The new Biofine peritoneal dialysis solutions bag has a user-friendly design for easy storage and use, and will be produced on a new manufacturing line in the company's Knoxville, Tennessee plant. It is expected to be made available first to a limited number of U.S. patients this fall.
