As a leading innovator in renal care, Gambro launches the AK 96 machine that takes the best of its predecessor, the AK 95 S, and improves upon it by enabling more flexibility and greater savings for dialysis providers.

The AK 96 machine is developed with changing economic and market needs in mind, providing reliable high quality care innovative features and high value. It is a substantial improvement, highly relevant in most markets, as it brings features from top of the range dialysis machines into a compact modular system.

Its innovative features such as the Diascan® system and a completely new user interface enable consistent and flexible high quality conventional HD treatments to be carried out in the simplest way. The standby mode allows providers to be flexible in fluid preparation and save both water and concentrate. With a range of configuration options, the AK 96 machine can be tailored to meet the needs of all dialysis providers who demand quality with improved operational efficiency.

"It is our ambition to always act with renal patients and our customers at the top of our minds. Dialysis should be simple, safe and effective and therefore I feel extremely happy to present AK 96, which has been developed with these requirements in mind," says Michael Lewis, President EMEA.

The AK 96 will be available from February 2008 in the following markets: UK, Ireland, Middle East, Africa, Canada, India, Vietnam, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand. Subsequent markets will be added throughout 2008 and 2009. The AK 96 is currently not for sale in the USA.
