Range of Applications
Skin antisepsis is the basis of correct and effective infection prevention in the hospital environment. The main purpose of surgical hand & skin antisepsis is to destroy or remove transient micro-organisms and inhibit the growth of resident micro-organisms. Antisepsis reduces the risk of surgical site infections in patients.
ScrubMe is a single-use sterile sponge impregnated with 4% Chlorhexidine Gluconate antiseptic solution for surgical hand disinfection and skin antisepsis.
ScrubMe has microbicidal activity against all gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, viruses and fungi.
The introduction of ScrubMe in the hospital will enable to establish of the right conditions for optimal preoperative hygiene of hand and skin.
Using a sponge brush rather than a brush is an effective means of reducing bacterial counts on hands without causing skin damage.
