The LUBRI-SIL® I.C. antimicrobial 100% silicone Foley catheter incorporates a technologically-advanced formulation consisting of BACTI-GUARD®* silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel. The coating on the LUBRI-SIL® I.C. Foley catheter is designed to minimize biofilm formation and enhance patient comfort.
In vitro testing of bacterial adherence demonstrates that the LUBRI-SIL® I.C. Foley catheter with BACTI-GUARD®* silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel reduces adhesion of the bacteria most commonly associated with catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).
