"Medisystems' Streamline technology has fast become our standard bloodline product, with our customers reporting improved operational efficiencies," said Sam Amory, Vice President B. Braun Renal Therapies Division. "We are pleased to provide Streamline as well as Medisystems MasterGuard and Buttonhole needles and ancillary products so our customers can provide excellent dialysis care."

Streamline features an efficient and airless design intended to improve clinical and economic performance. Streamline is designed to reduce dialysate flow, dialyzer size, treatment time, minimize heparin and waste, and optimize dose delivery, as measured in Kt/V. Streamline also includes NxStage's patented LockSite® needleless access ports, which eliminates the need for sharp needles or costlier guarded needles to be used with the tubing set during dialysis.

"This agreement validates the excellent performance of Medisystems' Streamline blood tubing sets and demonstrates our continued commitment to provide B. Braun customers with market leading products," said Mark Florence, Vice President and General Manager, Medisystems. "We look forward to working with B. Braun to meet the growing demand for Streamline."
