ChloraPrep™ Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation Product Line

ChloraPrep™ applicators are available for a range of minor and major medical procedures.

The 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol formulation provides rapid-acting1 and persistent1,3 antiseptic activity against a broad spectrum2 of microorganisms.

ChloraPrep™ applicators promote gentle friction to help the solution penetrate the first five cell layers of the epidermis, where 80% of microorganisms reside.4 The patented ChloraPrep™ applicator promotes aseptic technique and reduces the risk of direct hand-to-patient contact, helping prevent cross-contamination.5
