MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 26, 2018--
Covalon Technologies Ltd. (the "Company" or "Covalon") (TSXV: COV;
OTCQX: CVALF), an advanced medical technologies company, today announced
that it will be featuring its perioperative suite of innovative products
including MediClear™ PreOp at the Association of
periOperative Registered Nurse’s (AORN) Surgical Conference and Expo,
the largest international gathering of perioperative registered nurses
MediClear™ PreOp is 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.
"This is an exciting time for our perioperative line-up of products,"
said John R. Hands, Covalon’s Executive Vice President of Marketing.
"With the United States Food and Drug Administration clearance of
MediClear PreOp, our products are now truly able to follow the patient
through their surgical ‘life cycle’, giving their health care providers
the confidence that they are using state-of-the-art technology to help
in the fight against surgical site infections. We are confident that
MediClear PreOp will add enormous value to healthcare systems,
clinicians and of course patients through improved outcomes,” he
Covalon will also be showcasing its unique line of self-adherent
silicone products that aid in the management of the surgical incision.
These include SurgiClear™, a dual antimicrobial transparent
dressing proven to have a synergistic effect against some of the most
common surgical site infection bacteria1, and MediClear Scar™,
a single-use, discreet film dressing designed to help prevent, manage,
and reduce the severity of an incision scar.
Visit Covalon at booth 2814 at the AORN Surgical Conference and Expo
during exhibit hours between March 25-27, at the Ernest N.
