With iodophor mixed into the adhesive, 3M™ Ioban™ 2 Antimicrobial Incise Drapes provide a secure, sterile surface up to the wound edge. Its antimicrobial activity lasts throughout the procedure, and its superior adhesion reduces the risk of drape lift, reducing bacterial wound contamination compared with the use of no incise drape.

  • 1. Sterile Surface Point 3 What separates one incise drape from all the rest is where its antimicrobial agent lives. The antimicrobial in 3M™ Ioban™ 2 Ioban 2 Antimicrobial Drape antimicrobial incise drapes is in the adhesive – so it’s in constant contact Film with the skin. Adhesive with Iodophor Complex Touching Ioban 2 antimicrobial incise drapes are made from Skin patient’s skin a polymeric film coated with a pressure-sensitive adhesive. An iodophor complex is incorporated into the adhesive and provides antimicrobial properties (Fig. 17). Ioban 2 antimicrobial incise drapes not only immobilize bacteria, their iodophor complex Fig. 17 continues to come in contact with a patient’s skin. In an in vitro study, Ioban has been demonstrated to be effective in reducing microorganisms.1 Other clear incise drapes simply immobilize bacteria, but do not contain an antimicrobial agent. 1.
