- About Bactiguard››
The Bactiguard Infection Protection technology (BIP) is based on a hundred-year-old Swedish innovation by Gustav Dahlén. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1912 and is the man behind the successful AGA lighthouse system.
The Bactiguard technology has been evaluated extensively in both in vitro tests and clinical studies. It is well proven to be both tissue-friendly and safe for the patient, as well as efficient in reducing microbial adhesion of medical devices, and subsequent infections. Another advantage of the technology is that it can be applied to almost all types of materials which are used for medical devices.
We offer our technology in two different formats; through license business or in terms of our own BIP portfolio.
