ChloraPrep™ Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation

Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation

ChloraPrep™ is a rapid-acting,1 persistent,1,3 and broad-spectrum2 antiseptic for a range of minor and major medical procedures. The 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate/70% Isopropyl Alcohol formulation acts fast on a broad spectrum of bacteria, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA),2 and keeps fighting bacteria for at least 48 hours.1,3 Together, the formulation and applicator provide a proven system that supports infection control guidelines for helping to reduce the incidence of blood stream infections (BSI) and surgical site infections (SSI).

Together, the formulation and single use applicator reduce microorganisms on the skin.
