The purpose of this study is to determine non-inferiority in safety and efficacy when Quanta SC+ is used in the self-care home environment compared to a hemodialysis facility.

Official Title

A Prospective, Multi-Center, Open-Label Assessment of Efficacy and Safety of Quanta SC+ for Home Hemodialysis


This clinical trial is being conducted to evaluate the Quanta SC+ hemodialysis System for home use by patients with established kidney failure. A dialysis prescription of 3 sessions per week, 4 hours per session, or facility standard will be provided during the in-clinic training period, followed by the home period with a dialysis prescription of 4 sessions per week, 3.5 hours per session.

Open to people ages 18-80

  1. Provision of a written informed consent form signed by the participant
  2. Age between 18 and 80 years at time of enrollment
  3. A care partner must be available for training on SC+ and to be present in the home during all home hemodialysis sessions
  4. Participants should be either receiving regular, facility-based hemodialysis therapy for at least 90 days, or in the case of peritoneal patients transitioning to hemodialysis, at least 90 days, or performing home dialysis (with any frequency) for at least 90 days and willing to return to facility for purpose of study, and should be clinically stable and deemed suitable for home dialysis in the opinion of the principal investigator
  5. Willing to accept a dialysis prescription of 3 sessions per week, 4 hours each session or facility standard during in-clinic visits; 4 sessions, 3.5 hours each session during in-home sessions
  6. In the opinion of the Investigator, participant has well-functioning and stable vascular access (tunneled, central venous catheter, arteriovenous fistula, or graft) that allows a blood flow of at least 300 ml/min
  7. Home environment is adequate to ensure that appropriate electrical connections and water supply necessary for the use and storage of the device as assessed by Quanta prior to subject C1 visit. Also ensure that cellular signal and/or WIFI capacity is adequate.
  8. Participant or care partner are capable of understanding the nature of procedures and requirements of the study protocol and of home-based hemodialysis, and are willing and capable of complying with protocol and returning to treatment center as stated in protocol
  9. Participant or care partner are capable of being trained to use the machine and troubleshoot should an alarm situation occur

    10. In the opinion of the treating physician, the subject is able to participate in the

    trial in terms of social factors and personal functioning

    11. Acceptable physical ability of the participant and/or care partner to perform the

    hemodialysis treatment at home

    12. Financial coverage for treatment costs by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, or

    other arrangement acceptable to participant

Lack an ability for self-care 20. Are non-adherent to their current dialysis treatments 21. Experience intra-dialytic hypotension defined as a decrease in systolic blood pressure

    of greater than or equal to 20 mmHg or a decrease in mean arterial pressure of greater than or equal to 10 mmHg provided that the decrease is associated with clinical events (symptoms) and the need for an intervention (ultrafiltration turned off, bolus of fluid) in 3 of 5 previous treatments

    22. Is intolerant to heparin 23. Considered in the investigator's opinion to be clinically unstable for any other


    24. Undergoing outpatient dialysis for the treatment of acute kidney injury (AKI)
