Goodbye Dialysis: Nanotechnology Used to Make Artificial Kidney
Wednesday, December 16, 2015 | By William Tinker | No Comments
A recent article at the website Futurism.com shed light on the progress toward an Artificial Kidney for those suffering kidney failure and presently undergoing traditional kidney dialysis.
Taken from Futurism article: Now, scientists from the University of California, San Francisco and Vanderbilt University have developed a prototype device that mimics the function of a human kidney. Amazingly, using a silicon nanofilter to remove toxins, salts, some small molecules, and water from the blood, the device, which is only the size of a cup, is designed to function without a pump or electrical power. It solely works on blood pressure.
