Alteco LPS Adsorber

Alteco LPS Adsorber 

The Alteco® LPS Adsorber is a unique medical device for extracorporeal removal of endotoxin during hemoperfusion. The biotechnology of the product is based on a synthetic tailor-made peptide that selectively and irreversibly binds several times the endotoxin load found in patients with severe sepsis.  The peptide covers the surface of a porous polymer matrix, specially designed to provide an optimal surface for the peptide rather than act as a filter.
