PLYMOUTH, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar Cor Purification, Inc., a Cantel Medical Corp. (NYSE: CMD) business, announces the launch of the EON™ Portable Dialysis Water System. The portable water purification device uses reverse osmosis (RO) to remove organic and inorganic substances and microbial contaminants from water that feeds into hemodialysis machines to treat hemodialysis patients or related therapies. The water system quickly delivers and efficiently produces medical-grade water for single-patient hemodialysis treatments in hospitals, clinics, skilled nursing centers, and home environments.
The EON Water System combines reliable methodology with new technology. A color touch screen control panel offers intuitive commands and movements used by common hand-held devices. Medical teams and caregivers can confidently navigate the touch screen to manage the machine’s operation and to access information and data as needed. The EON Water System also features Mar Cor’s new patent pending Heat Forward™ Technology, a disinfection process that uses hot water to eliminate routine and time-consuming chemical processes for both the RO and hemodialysis machine inlet connection.
“We are excited to announce the launch of the EON Water System, our most capable and innovative portable RO water system,” said Greg Reny, Mar Cor’s senior vice president and general manager. “This is the result of a unique collaboration between our customers and our water system design experts to develop a next-gen portable RO for the hemodialysis market that offers efficiency, ease-of-use, cost effectiveness and longevity.”
Like central RO water systems, the EON Portable Dialysis Water System features an ENX™ Ultrafilter, which is a fully integrated filter that safeguards patients by removing bacteria and endotoxin exposure from the product water. Additional benefits of the EON Water System as compared to the MILLENIUM HX™ Portable Water Purification System, include:
- Ability to perform uninterrupted patient treatments by reducing potential nuisance alarm conditions.
- Greater capability to operate at low-inlet and unsteady water pressure conditions commonly found in hospital settings.
- Increased recovery and reduced consumption of resources.
- Reduced size and weight to fit tight space constraints.
The EON System is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) cleared device that meets AAMI-grade water standards according to ANSI/AAMI 13959 and is ideal for use in home and acute hemodialysis settings. For easy transport and mobility, combine the EON Water System with Mar Cor’s ROVER™ Dialysis Water Transport System.
