3M™ Ioban™ 2 Antimicrobial Incise Drape provides a powerful barrier to help reduce against microbial wound contamination. To help guard against surgical site infections (SSIs), Ioban 2 Antimicrobial Incise Drape creates an optimized wound incision environment through continuous antimicrobial activity, immobilizing bacteria and conformable adhesion that helps the drape stay in place throughout the surgical procedure.
Clinicians take great care to create a sterile feld in order to prevent intraoperative contamination from skin bacteria. However, the surgical site is commonly left exposed. Even with optimal skin preparation, total sterilization of the skin is impossible. You need more than a surgical prep to help prevent microbial regrowth or residual microbes from migrating into the wound or incision site.
Ioban 2 Antimicrobial Incise Drape has been extensively researched and has more published peer-reviewed studies than any other antimicrobial incise drape competitor.*
3M ofers a broad range of Ioban 2 Antimicrobial Incise Drapes in a variety of dimensions to ft your surgical protocol, including general and specialty drapes.
