Excellence through independence
So that we are able to guarantee consistently excellent quality for all products on a dependably high level, we not only design and develop all machines for extracorporeal blood treatment at our home manufacturing plant in Melsungen, but we produce them as well. Dialog+ Hemodialysis machines for the treatment of patients with Chronic Renal Failure, Diapact® CRRT for acute dialysis and Plasmat® Futura apheresis technology are all manufactured right here under the strictest quality controls and exclusive by qualified specialists.
Knowing that process safety never depends on one single component, the medical technology division develops and manufactures the disposable parts according to each therapy form and software along with the extracorporeal blood treatment machines at its facilities in Melsungen, Glandorf, Radeberg, Berggießhübel, Mirandola, and Budapest. Original B. Braun quality is integral everywhere. That’s proof that we are a competent partner in extracorporeal blood treatment systems.
