Anti-Microbial Medical Coating - RepelaCOAT

RepelaCOAT™ Anti-Microbial Lubricious Medical Device Coating & Surface Treatment

Anti-Microbial Coating

 

RepelaCOAT™ coatings are:

Effective

RepelaCOAT™ prevents growth of commonly occurring organisms such as E. Coli, staph, and candida.

Safe

RepelaCOAT™ maintains a slow release profile that minimizes toxicity to surrounding tissue.

Aqueous

RepelaCOAT™ coatings, since they are based on the LubriLAST™ platform, contain no organic solvents. Safer and cleaner manufacturing processes are used and any concerns about residual solvents in a device and are eliminated.

Durable

RepelaCOAT™ retains it’s physical integrity even after hundreds of cycles.

Long Lasting

RepelaCOAT™ has demonstrated effectiveness for up to 30 days.

 

Lubricious

RepelaCOAT™ incorporates lubricious polymers that reduce patient trauma and increase ease of handling.


How does RepelaCOAT™ work?

In RepelaCOAT™, silver salts and/or antibiotics are ionically bonded to the supporting polymer. In the presence of the sodium or calcium ions characteristic of body fluids, the anti-microbial agents ion exchange with these physiological cations. Long chain hydrophilic polymers incorporated in the coating adsorb water molecules and facilitate the ion exchange. Rather than exhibiting a huge “spike” of activity that diminishes rapidly over time and that may be toxic to the surrounding tissues RepelaCOAT™ prevents bacterial adherence by it’s slow ion-exchange release of anti-microbial agents.

Anti-Microbial Coating                                             

RepelaCOAT is an infection-resistant medical device coating with a patent pending, ion-exchange release mechanism. Unlike most anti-microbial coatings that have only a brief, initial spike of activity, RepelaCOAT can be customized to have a controlled, initial “peak release” followed by a sustained release of anti-microbial agents in the presence of blood or urine.
