Description

Description

ChloraPrep is a rapid-acting, persistent, and broad-spectrum antiseptic for a range of minor and major medical procedures. The 2% chlorhexidine gluconate / 70% isopropyl alcohol formulation acts fast on a broad spectrum of bacteria, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and keeps fighting bacteria for at least 48 hours. Together, the formulation and applicator provide a proven system that supports infection control guidelines for helping to reduce the incidence of blood stream infections and surgical site infections.

Used sequentially, the triple swabsticks cover a 5" x 5" area. Sold as set of 6 individually packaged 5.25 mL ChloraPrep Swabstick applicator (triple).

Benefits and Features:

  • Rapid acting: The 70% isopropyl alcohol in ChloraPrep rapidly kills microorganisms versus free iodine, which requires two minutes to begin antimicrobial activity
  • Persistent: ChloraPrep maintains antimicrobial activity for at least 48 hours compared to two hours for free iodine
  • Broad spectrum: ChloraPrep antimicrobial activity is effective against microorganisms including gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE), Clostridium difficile, Acineobacter, and most viruses and fungi
  • Active in protein-rich biomaterials: Remains active in the presence of blood, serum and other protein-rich biomaterials unlike traditional iodophors, which are neutralized
  • Low irritation: CHG demonstrates low incidence of irritation
  • Aseptic technique: Patented wing design eliminates direct hand-to-patient contact, helping to reduce cross-contamination
  • Friction scrub: Soft foam sponge's gentle-friction scrub helps the solution to penetrate the first five cell layers of the epidermis where 80% of microorganisms reside

ChloraPrep Uses:

  • Peripheral IV insertions and restarts
  • Dialysis procedures
  • Routine venipunctures
  • Percutaneous device insertions
  • Simple biopsies
  • Routine catheter maintenance
  • Arterial venous fistulas (AVF) / arterial venous graphs (AVG)
  • Arterial blood gas collections
  • Surgical site cleansing after suturing
