Non-invasive screening, diagnosis, and monitoring of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis

Kriba has developed a non-invasive and automatic white blood cell counter for at-home peritoneal dialysis patients, enabling access to early detection of peritonitis. Users will preserve treatment modality and avoid unwanted transfer to in-clinics hemodialysis.
This is an investigational device. It is not for sale. The claims made on this website have not been evaluated by the FDA or the CE Mark authorities.

Kriba generates impact on healthcare worldwide by accelerating non-invasive screening, diagnosis and monitoring of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis

Peritonitis is a frequent complication of peritoneal dialysis and it is associated with significant morbidity and mortality rates. It leads to increased treatment and surgery expenses, hospitalization rates, and it is the primary cause for transferring users to in-clinics hemodialysis, which results in notable reduction of the quality of life. This is why early detection of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis is crucial.
A high white blood cell count is detected in the draining line system to alert the user and nephrologist of the presence of an infection.
Domiciliary non-invasive screening for peritonitis can be done during peritoneal dialysis treatment within 24 hours from the onset of infection. Cell type classification can indicate the organism causing the infection.
Early detection allows for prompt initiation of antibiotic treatment before biofilm forms at the infection site. Remote treatment monitoring informs of the positive response the user’s antibiotic treatment.
