Provodine® is a next-generation professional antiseptic that meets or exceeds FDA requirements for use as a Surgical Scrub, Pre-Operative Skin Preparation, Healthcare Personnel Hand Wash and First Aid Antiseptic.
Built on Microdermis’ patented, multi-layered Amidermal® technology platform, Provodine® has demonstrated class-leading effectiveness against a wide range of microbes. Its unique formula ensures that it remains present and active for at least 6 hours, while at the same time nourishing the skin and preventing the dryness and damage associated with other products.
The Provodine® Advantage
Provodine® uses a proven active ingredient, Povidone-Iodine (PVP-Iodine), but with significantly improved performance due to its patented multi-layered Amidermal® delivery platform.
Microdermis’ unique Amidermal technology enables significantly enhanced kill strength, killing the most dangerous microbes. There are currently no known resistant strains to Provodine, making it especially useful for deployment in challenging environments with an unknown mix of infection sources, such as in military field hospitals and with globally-deployed NGO personnel.
The Amidermal technology also extends the potency window of the active ingredient, with a persistence exceeding 6 hours. Provodine is also waterproof and has proven to be impervious to removal with soap and water or alcohol-based products.
All of this remarkable antimicrobial performance comes in a surprisingly skin-friendly lotion. Provodine contains a proprietary blend of emollients (nutrients, amino acids, minerals, fatty acids, antioxidants, complex carbohydrates, and herbs) that are essential to healthy skin. These ingredients nourish and rebuild the skin eliminating dryness and cracking, which are not only uncomfortable, but also create portals for microbes. Healthy skin leads to better compliance with hand hygiene protocols. Finally, Provodine’s natural color allows for precise and controlled application.
The remarkable performance of Provodine has been demonstrated in a comprehensive series of tests and trials, both laboratory-based and in real-world clinical settings. Provodine is undergoing continuous testing to establish further evidence of its market-disruptive capabilities.
Using Provodine in your institution can make a genuine difference for both patients and healthcare personnel.
Apart from its penchant for the seriously ill within intensive care units, Acinetobacter baumannii has more recently caused a range of infectious syndromes in military
personnel injured in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
Provodine is effective against this multi-drug resistant HAI.
