Hemodialysis Machine Terminal Disinfectant

6106 - CITRO PLUS™

Hemodialysis Machine Terminal Disinfectant

For Heat Disinfection of Hemodialysis Machine with Recirculation

After each hemodialysis treatment, the system hydraulics must be disinfected with a decalcify disinfectant to remove calcification and microorganisms. Otherwise, malfunction may occur depending on the concentrates used and the bicarbonates concentration.

CITRO PLUS™ is used for chemo-thermal disinfection (a combination of chemical and heat disinfection) of haemodilysis machines with recirculation. CITRO PLUS is a very strong and effective disinfectant because of the synergistic effected of its ingredients

CITRO PLUS™ is designed for thermocheical disinfection in hemodialysis machines. Thermochemical disinfectant for hemodialysis machines with proportional mixing system and recirculation function.

Advantages of CITRO PLUS™

  • Disinfection and decalcification in one process
  • Natural materials used as active ingredients : Citric acid, malic acid, lactic acid
  • Biodegradable, non-toxic
  • Safe for health and environment
  • Light lemon scent, colourless

Mechanism of Antimicrobial Action of Citric acid

Destruction of the phospholipid layers in the cell membrane; disturbance of the intracellular pH balance; formation of Ca/Mg salts or salt complexes in the case of citric acid; activity strongly increased by an increase in temperature.

Microbiological Properties

The synergistic effect of its components makes CITRO PLUSTM a potent disinfectant solution. CITRO PLUS™ at 84°C has a broad spectrum of microbiocidal activity and works bactericidal, virus inactivating (HBV, HCV, HIV) and fungicidal. A 3% CITRO PLUS™ solution is bactericidal, fungicidal, virucidal and sporocidal at 84°C.


However, CITRO PLUS™ cannot develop any disinfecting action if used at room temperature. To be used according machine instruction at elevated temperatures only.

Composition (100g Citro Plus contains)

Citric acid (21 %), lactic acid, malic acid, buffers, preservative agents, distilled water. Dose not contain phenol and derivates, glutaraldehyde, quaternary ammonium salts, active chlorine ve other halogen compounds.
