This anaesthesia tray from UK healthcare product supplier Proact is made from an antimicrobial high impact polystyrene.
Proact Medical, an independent UK based company specialising in the manufacture and supply of patient monitoring, diagnostic, airway management, anaesthetic and resuscitation products, has launched an antimicrobial anaesthetic tray.
Comprising three individual troughs to assist safe picking and storing of instruments, syringes and drug vials, each has ridged handles ensure a firm grip and they are constructed from high impact polystyrene with Biomaster built-in antimicrobial protection.
Designed for the hygiene critical environment of the dental surgery, they are single use and the added benefit of the antimicrobial imprint helps to avoid infection risks associated with the re-use of such trays whilst also saving cleaning time.
The trays are supplied clinically clean to eliminate sterile shelf life issues
According to Philip Sharman, Director of Quality at Proact Medical, “Our primary aim is to deliver high quality products at unbeatable prices. So, we work closely with clinicians and medical professionals throughout the healthcare industry to ensure our products exceed the needs of the clinician and the patient. The antimicrobial benefit provided by Biomaster in our anaesthetic tray does exactly that.”
Biomaster antimicrobial technology is a range of unique formulations blended specifically for each end application to provide maximum performance and durability.
The antimicrobial action of Biomaster is silver ion technology. Silver is a natural antimicrobial used for centuries to prevent the growth of bacteria. Even today, it is used in gels to treat serious burns and in coated dressings to aid wound healing.
Biomaster works to kill bacteria in three ways. Silver ions built into the surface of the product bind to and damage the bacteria cell wall preventing growth; they stop bacteria from producing energy and interrupt the DNA preventing replication. If a bacteria cell cannot grow, produce energy or replicate, it dies.
Biomaster is inorganic and becomes an integral part of the anaesthetic tray so it can’t leach out or be washed off.
