Published on July 31, 2014 at 9:11 AM · No Comments

CareFusion (NYSE: CFN), a leading global medical technology company, today announced the launch of its ChloraPrep® 1 mL applicator, the newest addition to the ChloraPrep line of preoperative skin preparation products.

ChloraPrep 1 mL provides clinicians with a preferred applicator design and the same formulation as all other ChloraPrep applicators but in a new 1 mL size. The new size is ideal for procedures with an application area approximately 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches or smaller.

"The new ChloraPrep 1 mL applicator is an excellent extension of our ChloraPrep family of products, using the same formulation clinicians have come to know and trust," said Jan Creidenberg, vice president and general manager of Infection Prevention for CareFusion. "We continue to extend our skin prep leadership through our commitment to innovation and new product development to better meet our customers' needs."

With its unique delivery system and winged activation design, the 1 mL applicator is easy to use and can help promote aseptic technique and best practices. ChloraPrep skin prep products have been proven to be more effective than povidone-iodine at reducing microorganisms on the skin that may cause infection. ChloraPrep chlorhexidine products also have a low incidence of irritation and maintain their antimicrobial effectiveness in the presence of blood, unlike iodine-based products.
