BioCote® partners within the healthcare industry

In recent years, BioCote® has seen the breadth of its healthcare sector partners – and the type of products being treated – increase. We work with manufacturers of breathing apparatus, aerosol therapy accessories and items like catheters, endoscopes and vaginal dilators. Antimicrobial technology is also frequently integrated into other high-touch surfaces, such as door handles, switches and buttons, as well as floors, wall cladding and lighting.

Antimicrobial products for healthcare

In the medical and healthcare sectors, antimicrobial technology is primarily used to strengthen the stringent cleaning and handwashing regimes that are commonplace in hospitals, health centres, clinics and surgeries. Medical equipment and devices that contain antimicrobial additives are protected against the growth of a wide range of microbes, including antibiotic-resistant superbugs, making them easier to keep hygienically clean.

What’s more, by effectively reducing a broad spectrum of microbes by up to 99.9% on a treated surface, BioCote® minimises the potential of microbial cross-contamination from one surface to another. Products that BioCote® has treated with antimicrobial additives within the healthcare industry include breathing circuits, patient beds and stretchers, castors, PVC wall cladding or assistive and accessible bathroom solutions.
