Helping to Protect Against HAIs
Implantable medical devices have improved the lives of patients, but introducing a foreign material into the body still increases the risk of infection. Hospitals are becoming more and more focused on decreasing the rate of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which means many healthcare facilities are going beyond disinfection – they’re investing in implantable devices that will actively work to resist infection-causing microbes.
That’s where Sciessent comes in. Our antimicrobial product can be incorporated into implantable medical devices to prevent the growth and spread of microbes on device surfaces, thereby reducing the risk to patients and healthcare facilities from dangerous infections.
