Definition of dialyzate in US English:


(also dialysate)


  • 1The part of a mixture which passes through the membrane in dialysis.

    • ‘The correlation of the selenium concentrations with the protein concentrations in the dialysate is significant (p [is less than] 0.01) with a Spearman R value of 0.97.’
    • ‘The selenium concentration doubled, and protein appeared in the dialysates during dialysis session.’
    • ‘The returned dialysate contained between 2.6 mEq / L and 14 mEq / L of lactate in one study, and the calculated lactate clearance by peritoneal dialysis averaged 21 mL / min in another.’
    • ‘The dialysate was concentrated using a Centriprep (Millipore, Billerica, MA).’
    • ‘We have to mention here that generally dialysis needs to be performed, and the dialysate should be used for dn/dc and SLS measurements.’
    1. 1.1 The solution dialyzate forms with the fluid on the other side of the membrane in dialysis.
      • ‘However, a decrease in the content of free Ca2 + and Mg2 + was recognized in dialysates of egg homogenates shortly after the initiation of exocytosis.’
      • ‘The presence of MMP - 9 protein in dialysates was studied by Western blot analysis.’
      • ‘The dialysate was clarified by centrifugation and stored at - 80C. Protein concentration of the HSV - 2 Rl preparation was measured by the method of Bradford using y-globulin as a standard.’
      • ‘The dialysate was centrifuged for 10 min at 10000 rpm at 4C.’
      • ‘Accordingly, the present invention relates to an improved radiometric assay of dialysates obtained from equilibrium dialysis.’
    2. 1.2 The fluid used on the other side of the membrane during dialysis to remove impurities.
      • ‘These were treated with changes in his peritoneal dialysate, Kayexalate, and anti-hypertensive medication and he had no residual problems.’
      • ‘In cases of resistant, life-threatening hypercalcemia, hemodialysis against a low-calcium dialysate is more effective than peritoneal dialysis in lowering serum calcium levels.’
      • ‘The dialysate of first group contained ISM, the second used dialysate only, the third contained dopamine.’
      • ‘When dialysis is use for treatment, calcium is added to the dialysate to correct for hypocalcemia and to prevent renal osteodystrophy.’
      • ‘The remaining bags of dialysate in the 35-bag lot were retrieved and no other patients received dialysate from the same lot.’


Late 19th century: from dialysis + -ate; the term originally denoted the part of the mixture which does not pass through the membrane.
