Abstract

PVC tubes, from the dialysis water distribution system of a 14 and a 7 year old plant, were analysed by scanner electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray microanalysis (EDAX). Results showed that the leaching of material occurs depending on time of use. The phenomenon does not modify the chemical composition of the material. Results suggest that PVC alterations, induced by time, could support bacterial proliferation thus reducing the quality of dialysate.
