The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted clearance to AmeriWater's MediQA dialysis system. The unit can serve 6 to 40 stations at dialysis facilities with reverse osmosis water treatment and heat disinfection.

“By combining the advantages of RO technology with hot water disinfection, the MediQA provides a superior blend of reliability, efficiency and patient safety,” said AmeriWater CEO Diane Dolan. “We are very pleased to see the MediQA cleared by the FDA. With its advantages in capacity, I believe we’ll see a rapid adoption in the U.S. of this design field-proven in Europe for several years by our sister company, Purite.”
