B. Braun takes over Nephtec

With the takeover of the business operations of Nephtec GmbH, B. Braun Avitum AG, as a systems provider for extracorporeal blood treatment (dialysis), has strengthened its product portfolio in the area of the central preparation of dialysis concentrates.

Through collaboration with Intermedt Medizin & Technik GmbH, B. Braun already has extensive experience in the area of fully-automated concentrate preparation in dialysis. This process is conducted in a simple, economic and environmentally-friendly way in order to produce dialysis concentrates reliably and safely, in any renal care center.

“In taking over the business of Nephtec GmbH, we are reacting to the increasing worldwide demand in this area. In addition to the expertise in connection with filling large cartridges, we are also extending our existing network of production locations in the course of the acquisition,” says Dr. Holger Seeberg, member of the Management Board at B. Braun Avitum AG. “In the future we will be able to produce even better right there where the need is and thus offer tangible added value to our customers and the previous customers of Nephtec GmbH.”

The Nephtec company is a part of the private corporate group Centec in Maintal. The group has many years of experience in the development and implementation of complete process solutions in the pharmaceutical industry as well as in the beverage, food, chemical and energy industries.
