Achieve Freshness with Antimicrobial Catheter Product Protection

Catheters, such as Urinary Foley Catheters, are associated with a high rate of HAI's in patients due to biofilm incrustation and propagation during use. Microban's long-lasting technologies offer antimicrobial catheter product protection and a significant performance difference from traditionally silver-coated technologies. By infusing Microban treatment during catheter manufacturing, our unique solutions inhibit both planktonic bacteria and biofilm growth.

Collaboration is important to the Microban team during product development. We invite our partners to be a part of their own product development, openly communicating with them about ideal antimicrobial catheter product protection during the planning stage. This helps our engineering team better design and test suitable antimicrobial additives. When Microban’s chemists discover the ideal additive that best resists microbial reproduction, masterbatch production begins. Even after the product development cycle is complete, Microban continues to support clients. From marketing assistance to patent counseling, we help you streamline antimicrobial integration.

Microban has the resources and expertise required to work with you to realize custom-engineered solutions for both the treated article and disinfectant or other public health applications you may require. Disinfectant and public health claims and applications will require the finished products to be registered with the EPA under FIFRA and may also require clearance as medical devices by FDA before they can be placed on the market. Treated article applications cannot claim antimicrobial protection beyond protection of the product itself from antimicrobial stains, odors and/or deterioration and is not designed to protect users against illness or as a substitute for normal cleaning or hygiene practices.
