22 Unpublished data from Fresenius Medical Care Deutschland GmbH: Internal calculation based on weight measurements before treatment of FX Dialysers versus F-series dialysers.
23 Unpublished data from Fresenius Medical Care Deutschland GmbH: Internal calculation based on weight measurements of FME FX classix 80 versus FME HF 80S. The typical number of treatments in most clinics is approximately 10,000 per year; this results in about 1,600 kg less waste being produced annually with FX classix 80 when used on FME 5008 CorDiax machine.
