Title: What You Need To Know When Selecting An Antimicrobial Additive For Your Medical Device


In an effort to reduce HAI rates, an increasing number of hospitals are implementing broad infection-control strategies that include the use antimicrobial-protected medical devices. With the demand for these devices growing, manufacturers are exploring how they can develop new technologies to meet the needs of customers but are often left with many unanswered questions regarding antimicrobial additive selection.

In this presentation we address important considerations when selecting and applying antimicrobials in medical devices, and present the results of newly conducted research that demonstrates the efficacy of six controlled release silver antimicrobial polymer systems against four relevant antibiotic-resistant organisms.

We hope to see you at the conference!
