Mississauga, Ontario – A silicone film drape with a polyurethane barrier film from Covalon has won an innovation award.
Frost & Sullivan has given its 2018 North American surgical site infection prevention new product innovation award to the device.
MediClear PreOp is an antimicrobial self-adherent drape. It is designed to be placed on skin before operations and reduces the risk of bacterial contamination.
The PU barrier film isolates the site of the operation from external contamination, and the silicone adhesive kills a broad range of bacteria and fungi. It is breathable, transparent, and available in three sizes.
