Urology procedures and devices are a major contributor to healthcare-acquired infections, with the CDC estimating that nearly one third of U.S. cases resulting from catheter-associated urinary tract infections. To reduce these occurrences, urological device makers have become a major implementer of antimicrobial coatings.
Harland Medical Systems produces both passive and active antimicrobial coatings to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Each of these Bacticent® antimicrobial coatings is designed around the clinical needs and regulatory environment of a specific device. In addition, our Lubricent® low-friction hydrophilic coatings help ease device insertion, improve positioning and reduce patient discomfort during procedures.
