Using the right equipment for optimal protection
Choosing the right products is an essential component in sustaining and developing successful infection control. At Mölnlycke Health Care we take great pride in creating the safest possible single-use equipment for the security of both patients and clinicians.
Biogel surgical gloves
Biogel® has a superior puncture indication system for enhanced safety; a security feature that helps minimize the risk for both patient and healthcare professionals from blood-borne pathogens. Double gloving has been found to reduce surgical cross infection between staff and patients5 and is recommended by US AORN (Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses) and the RCS (Royal College of Surgeons of England).

BARRIER surgical drapes
All BARRIER® surgical drapes are designed to ensure the best possible patient safety by providing an optimal barrier against microbial migration. Effective infection control is achieved through impermeable materials where needed, while effective fluid control is obtained through absorption or fluid collection pouches – allowing for a drier working area. All foldings are designed for optimal aseptic handling and easy application, which also contributes to infection control.
The BARRIER products also come complete with the best available service and support including both training for optimal usage and tailored supply and logistic solutions all according to your need.

The patient's skin is an important source of wound contamination3 and it is important to reduce the microbial burden and hence the risk of infection. This is commonly done preoperatively with whole body washing.
HiBiScrub helps to prevent SSIs and HAIs7. It provides instant protection and up to a six-hour residual effect6. HiBiScrub is kind to skin as it contains a blend of emollients that is dermatologically tested8.
