ABOUT ARMSTRONG MEDICAL

Based in Northern Ireland, Armstrong Medical was established in 1984 to manufacture and sell respiratory disposable products for critical care applications. Since then, the company has grown considerably to become a worldwide leading manufacturer and supplier of high quality, innovative respiratory disposables for anaesthesia and critical care.

Armstrong Medical partners with BioCote® to produce AquaVENT® – an antimicrobial heated breathing circuit. The corrugated tubing used in the production of this breathing circuit is manufactured using BioCote® to limit the number of microbes on its surfaces when in use, protecting the circuit from microbial colonisation.

BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology in breathing circuit tubing uses inorganic silver ion particles dispersed homogeneously throughout the tubing polymer. As BioCote® only validates products achieving a minimum 95% reduction in microbes, Armstrong Medical can offer a unique benefit to customers using their breathing circuits.
