Our Infection Prevention product portfolio

Bactiguard's product portfolio, Bactiguard Infection Protection (BIP), prevents healthcare associated infections (HAI) in the urinary tract, the respiratory tract and in the bloodstream. Approximately two thirds of all HAI occur in these three main areas of the body, and medical devices cause an overwhelming majority of these infections.

The current product portfolio consist of indwelling Foley catheters (BIP Foley Catheters), endotracheal tubes (BIP Endotracheal Tube) and central venous catheters (BIP Central Venous Catheter), all with the Bactiguard-coating, which  prevents infections and increases patient safety.

 

The Bactiguard coating is unique in the way that it effectively reduces the adhesion and growth of microbes, while at the same time being tissue friendly. More than 150 million Bactiguard coated catheters have been used in clinical practice since 1995 with no reported adverse events related to the Bactiguard coating. Bactiguard coated products have been used in a large number of clinical studies and evaluations (1986-2015) involving over 100,000 patients.

Through innovative technol­ogy, Bactiguard provides clinically proven, practical and cost effective solutions for infection control, which in turn contribute to reduced healthcare costs, reduced use of antibiotics and saving lives.
