Healthcare Applications

Antimicrobial Products Improve Healthcare Cleanliness


Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) account for 100,000s deaths per year in the United States alone; more than breast cancer, auto accidents and AIDS combined. Microban® can incorporate technologies that will kill disease causing pathogens such as MRSA, Ecoli, enterobacter aerogenese, pseudomonas aeruingosa, VRE, staphylococcus aureus, and many more into your medical products. Antimicrobial products for healthcare such as catheters, dressings, masks benefit by having built-in technology that will kill 99.9% of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. These antimicrobial products will continue antibacterial action against these germs even after repeated contamination.

Initially engineered for use in the healthcare industry, Microban antimicrobial product technology is built-in during the manufacturing process to create cleaner healthcare environments. Antimicrobial products for healthcare such as masks, dressings, and catheters are just a few of the many products that can benefit from our built-in technology designed to kill pathogens. Because Microban technology never washes away or wears off, it provides healthcare professionals protection throughout the useful life of the products.

Join trusted brands like InterMetro, Touchpoint Medical and Medline, and let Microban revolutionize your company’s healthcare product line value. We will help you supply your partners with antimicrobial products from bedding and drapes to medical tools.

Microban long-lasting technologies offer antimicrobial product protection for catheters and a significant performance difference from traditionally silver-coated technologies.

Dental Trays

Because dental trays can be polymer-based, antimicrobial product protection can be infused during the manufacturing process.

Healthcare Storage

Microban silver and zinc-based technologies can treat any polymer-based substrates, providing antimicrobial product protection to healthcare storage products and mobile hospital stations.

Mobile Workstations and Carts

Valuable tools, carts and workstations can be used throughout a hospital to transport medication, equipment, linens and other supplies and to enter crucial information.

Office Products

Today, Americans are spending more and more time at their desks and dirty desktops can create the ideal conditions for damaging microbes to grow and reproduce.
