At CMC Hygea, our teams are involved in the design and development of unique antimicrobial healthcare products.
It is our aim to make a significant contribution to reducing the threats and costs of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI’s).
In an era which has seen the emergence of highly resistant pathogenic and persistent microbes, we have developed a unique bathing system - PathAguard® ABLiS® - and have recently launched our new award winning antimicrobial leg ulcer and wound cleaning aid PathAguard® LUCA®.
Both products significantly reduce the risk of contamination of the environment, patient and care worker. We have more infection control products in development and look forward to making them available to the healthcare market in the future.
We use antimicrobial additives (based on “Silver ion Technology”) in all our products. This technology has three modes of Action:
The silver ions bind to the cell wall disrupting growth
The silver ions interfere with enzyme production stopping the cell producing energy
The silver ions interrupt the cell’s DNA preventing replication
