MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Covalon Technologies Ltd. (the "Company" or "Covalon") (TSXV: COV; OTCQX: CVALF), an advanced medical technologies company, today announced that it will exhibit at the APIC 2018 Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, June 13th to 15th.
Covalon will be showcasing its unique line of antimicrobial self-adherent silicone products, including MediClear™ PreOp, the market’s first breathable and transparent antimicrobial self-adherent silicone drape for preoperative skin. Its polyurethane barrier film acts as a protective barrier to isolate a procedural site from external contamination, and its silicone adhesive provides a rapid bactericidal and fungicidal effect against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, averaging a 99.99% reduction after 30 minutes, and preventing their regrowth for up to seven days during wear.1
Covalon’s other ground-breaking infection-fighting products will also be on display, including SurgiClear™, a dual antimicrobial transparent post-operative dressing, and IV Clear™, an antimicrobial clear silicone adhesive securement dressing to cover and protect vascular access devices, both of which are proven to have a synergistic effect against some of the most commonly associated hospital-acquired infection bacteria.2
“APIC 2018 is a great opportunity for Covalon to display our innovative infection prevention products to medical professionals and potential business partners from around the world,” said Brian Pedlar, Chief Executive Officer. “The cost of fighting unwanted infections is a significant burden to health care systems in every country. Our products and technologies were developed to kill bacteria and other pathogens that can lead to infections that hospitals otherwise spend significant amounts to treat and that are responsible for needless deaths every year.”
APIC 2018 features the largest exhibition of leading-edge science and technology dedicated to infection prevention and showcases innovative products and services from more than 270 companies. It is the largest annual gathering of infection prevention specialists from across the United States and around the world.
Visit Covalon at Booth 1547 at APIC 2018 during exhibit hours June 13th to 15th at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN, USA.
