Antimicrobial Respiratory Disposables

Antimicrobial Respiratory Disposables by 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® validates products achieving a minimum 95% reduction in microbes, Armstrong Medical can offer a unique benefit to customers using their breathing circuits.

What our partners say

  • We chose BioCote because we wanted the security of working with a company that would do more than simply sell us an additive or give us an unrecognisable trademark to co-brand our product. BioCote made our entrance into the antimicrobial market easy. They seamlessly integrated themselves into our business and have done so ever since, ensuring we have always operated with maximum confidence.

  • We chose to work with BioCote because they are the leading antimicrobial brand. We explored other options but soon realised the knowledge, experience and credibility they bring to the table could not be matched. When customers purchase our products we want them to be assured the product will deliver in every aspect, this includes delivering superior antimicrobial performance.

  • We chose to work with BioCote as it is the leading brand in this field and a brand we felt we could trust. We found the staff to be extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable; they are truly experts in all things antimicrobial! Partnering with BioCote has benefited Rosewood for these reasons but also because it has meant that we are now associated with another quality brand.
