Renal Dialysis Total Chlorine Monitor

Continuous Automated Safety Monitoring of Haemodialysis Water

Swan Analytical Instruments’ Renal Dialysis Total Chlorine Monitor continuously monitors Chlorine in dialysis water systems so that patients receive the safest water possible.

Water Testing In Renal Dialysis

Why is there chlorine in dialysis water?

Chlorine can enter dialysis water with the source town water or is added to disinfect the water and/or machinery used in dialysis treatments. If high levels of Total Chlorine go unnoticed in dialysis water, patients risk developing severe haemolytic anaemia.

Traditional methods used to test chlorine in dialysis water

The standard method for measuring chlorine in dialysis water systems is manual testing by nursing staff. Not only does this take up the nurses’ valuable time, but it also allows room for human error or differing interpretations of results. It also means that Total Chlorine is not continuously monitored, and potentially dangerous chlorine spikes may go unnoticed. Our research has also found that many of the testing kits used in renal wards are not sensitive enough to accurately detect the relatively low levels of chlorine in dialysis water. 

The best way to test dialysis water for Total Chlorine

Swan Analytical Instruments’ Renal Dialysis Total Chlorine Monitor (Codes-II TC Analyser) continuously monitors Total Chlorine in dialysis water systems, so patients receive the safest water possible. This removes the need for manual testing, providing the medical team with automated and reliable online water monitoring (over 1000 times per week) and early warning alerts if Total Chlorine rises to unsafe levels.

With Swan Analytical Instruments, renal ward teams can be confident that the dialysis water treatment system is healthy, and patients are protected from sudden and unpredictable chlorine surges in the water.
