Leading Medical Applications
Explore a few of the medical applications we provide customized solutions for and how you can differentiate your product from the competition.
Implantable & Reusable Devices
Implantable & Reusable Devices have improved the lives of countless patients, but unfortunately these devices still pose a risk of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Hospitals are becoming more and more focused on decreasing the rate of HAIs caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which means many facilities are going beyond disinfection, investing in devices that will actively work to prevent infection-causing microbes. That’s where Sciessent comes in.
Our antimicrobial product can be incorporated into both acute and chronic implantables along with reusable medical devices to prevent the growth and spread of microbes on devices for long-term antimicrobial protection for products.
Medical tubing such as catheters, feeding tubes and ventilation devices are life-saving but they’re also notorious for infection. These tubes often harbor dangerous organisms, including superbugs like CRE and MRSA. Microorganisms that reside on healthcare workers or a patient’s skin can easily colonize these devices and cause infection.
In order to combat this growing threat of antibiotic-resistant infections (and the steep financial penalties for high infection rates) healthcare facilities are investing in medical tubing that leverages antimicrobial technologies with proven high-reduction rates for the most concerning strains of bacteria.
Bio Connectors and Adapters
Bio connectors and adaptors are used on everything from vascular access devices to urinary catheters to breathing ventilators. These small, but critical components are handled multiple times a day by healthcare workers and are often overlooked as a source for cross-contamination.
Healthcare facilities are therefore going a step further than simple disinfection to combat the growth of microbes and resistant bacteria. Now, they’re increasingly investing in bio connectors and adaptors that have the built-in means to fight against microbial contamination.
With HAIs on the rise combined with the current COVID-19 pandemic, it’s never been more important to keep medical textiles protected from potentially life-threatening microbes.
From face masks to medical gowns to surgical mesh and more, Agion is proven to inactivate viruses by 99.99%*, providing an enhanced level of antimicrobial product protection for patients and healthcare workers when they need it most.
