Antimicrobial Treatment Inhibits Bacteria Growth on Surfaces

Healthcare acquired infections (HCAI) result in significant amounts of death and suffering each year. Reducing contamination and impurities in materials and in the body, at the workplace, and in hygiene-critical environments is the focus of many research and development projects.

Manufacturers of medical devices gain an added shield in their packaging design with Wipak’s new specially treated sterile barrier materials for inhibiting bacteria growth on the packaging surface.

Medical packaging forms the first line of defense against bacterial contamination of medical devices such as catheters, implants, and wound dressings. Our antimicrobial films and papers comprise a silver-based component. Silver-coated catheters and silver-containing dressings are widely used today to fight risks of infection.
