That is a lot of innovation, yet certain products stick whereas others do not. 

    For more than 50 years 3M™ Steri-Strip™ Skin Closures are one example of a product that has illustrated long-lasting, proven innovation. Learn how our skin adhesive closures offer cost-saving, non-invasive and sterile skin closures to meet your wound closure needs.

Improved Patient Outcomes

Big Impact. Small Solution

  • surgical site infections

    Stopping infections before they start is a big part of your job. Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the second most-common hospital-acquired infection (HAI) accounting for 20% of all HAIs among hospitalized patients1, and costing up to $29,000 depending on the pathogen and procedure2. As you are looking for untapped potential for infection control, consider using 3M™ Steri- Strip™ Skin Closures which may help reduce the risk of infection as compared to sutures and staples.3,4
