  • In a third party in vitro simulated vascular insertion study designed to measure the levels of particulate, Covalon’s Centaur™ coating resulted in statistically significantly lower levels for all particulate sizes relative to the same uncoated catheter. 
  • This contrasts with other coatings that can generate nearly twice as many particles as the same uncoated catheter
  • Covalon’s Centaur™ coating technology specifically targets and is ideally suited for a growing segment of the medical coatings market focused on improving lubricity while maintaining coating durability

Dual Antimicrobial Silicone Adhesive

In addition to Centaur, Covalon will be featuring CovaClear™ its proprietary dual antimicrobial silicone adhesive platform, which can effectively kill 99.99% of the bacteria that it comes in contact with, reducing the risk of infection as well as diminishing the likelihood of developing a medical adhesive related skin injury or MARSI, a clinically relevant and potentially avoidable event. Both platforms are available for licensing and are applicable across a variety of fields-of-use.

MD&M West connects thousands of advanced design and manufacturing professionals from the world's largest collection of medical technology suppliers with executives who are ready to forge business partnerships. Covalon is present at booth 867 during exhibit hours.
