Medical coatings provided by BioInteractions, such as our Advanced Heparin Coating (biocompatible and tissue compatible), Surface Active Antimicrobial Coating and Highly Lubricious Coating are at the top end of innovation. The applications for these coatings lie in perfusion, infusion, implantable products, sensors, and in-vitro diagnostics.
AvertPlus™ Antimicrobial is a non-leaching coating that provides infection resistance to a surface and reduces biofilm formation. The coating targets a broad spectrum of bacteria, which significantly reduces the risk of infections.
The coated surface interacts with the bacteria and causes them to physically lyse. This process is non-leaching and provides a consistent effect without any degradation of impact by releasing components. The coating enhances the surface by causing the bacteria to lyse and prevents adhesion onto the surface. The coating accomplishes this without the use of any toxic or eluting components. The two-factor approach prevents infections from arising as well as from spreading, which helps reduce the risk of the surface.
From Toxic Components
Variety of Bacteria
AvertPlus™ Antimicrobial Coating uses an active agent combined with a passive component to eliminate the infection and prevent bacterial colonisation on a surface.
This dual functionality gives the coating advantages over alternative options for tackling infections on a surface. The contact kill mechanism hinders biofilm formation which significantly reduces the ability of bacteria remaining on the surface. The combined active and passive components of the coating provide an effective method to eliminate bacteria, prevent biofilm formation and inhibits bacteria from adhering to the surface.
