PROACT Medical launches anesthetic tray with Biomaster antimicrobial technology

PROACT Medical Ltd, an independent UK based company specialising in the manufacture and supply of Patient Monitoring, Diagnostic, Airway Management, Anaesthetic and Resuscitation products to the NHS and private organisations, has launched an antimicrobial anaesthetic tray with Biomaster Protection.

Comprising three individual troughs to assist safe picking and storing of instruments, syringes and drug vials, each has ridged handles ensure a firm grip and they are constructed from high impact polystyrene with Biomaster built-in antimicrobial protection.

Designed for the hygiene critical environments of the dental surgery and operating theatre, they are single use and the added benefit of the antimicrobial imprint helps to avoid infection risks associated with the re-use of such trays whilst also saving cleaning time.

The trays are supplied clinically clean to eliminate sterile shelf life issues.

According to Philip Sharman, Director of Quality at PROACT, “Our primary aim is to deliver high quality products at unbeatable prices. So, we work closely with clinicians and medical professionals throughout the healthcare industry to ensure our products exceed the needs of the clinician and the patient. The antimicrobial benefit provided by Biomaster in our anaesthetic tray does exactly that.”

Biomaster Protection is based on proven silver ion technology. Silver is a natural antimicrobial that has been used for centuries to prevent the growth of bacteria.

Biomaster works to kill bacteria in three ways. Silver ions built into the surface of the product bind to the bacteria cell wall preventing growth; they stop bacteria from producing energy and interrupt the DNA preventing replication. If a bacteria cell cannot grow, produce energy or replicate, it dies.

Biomaster is inorganic and becomes an integral part of the anaesthetic tray so it won’t leach out or be washed off.
