Highlights
  • Provides both rapid bacterial kill and long lasting antimicrobial persistence
  • Contains 3M™ Prep Protection Film, which dries to form a persistent and durable layer of protection on the patient's skin
  • 3M™ Prep Protection Film was scientifically formulated to protect the prep from removal during surgery
  • The 3M Prep Protection film acts as a primer that helps an antimicrobial incise drape adhere to the patient's skin and protects against incise drape lift

A proper skin prep reduces a patient's bacterial load throughout the perioperative process, providing both immediate and lasting protection.

But not all preps perform the same during surgery. Preps need to stay on the skin to remain effective. Preps can be removed during surgery by saline irrigation, dabbing with sponges or gauze, or contact with bodily fluids. 3M DuraPrep surgical solution was scientifically formulated to protect the prep from removal during surgery. It contains 3M™ Prep Protection Film, which dries to form a persistent and durable layer of protection on the patient's skin.1

Duraprep Badge

As a result, a study showed that 3M DuraPrep surgical solution is more resistant to removal by saline-soaked gauze than ChloraPrep™ Skin Prep. In fact, the same study showed that 3M DuraPrep surgical solution had significantly greater bacterial reduction than ChloraPrep Skin Prep after challenge by saline-soaked gauze in simulated surgery.2
