English term or phrase: Unfortunately, these dialyzers are very expensive
I know one word for "expensive" is "Caro". Is there another one that would sound more professional?

Thank you

Lamentablemente, estos dializadores son muy caros


Explanation:
You don't need help translating on this one, you need a thesaurus. There is a saying in Spanish: al pan, pan y al vino, vino. There is nothing wrong in saying "caro". If you prefer, I suppose you could use "costoso", I don't really think it makes any difference at all.
