Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) instruments

Instruments used for invasive surgery all bypass the body's natural lines of defence and consequently pave the way for infections. An instrument coated with BALIMED ARGENTA, creates a surface with an antimicrobial effect. The LR test method (logarithmic reduction of the number of bacteria) was used to demonstrate this effect of the new Ag-doped PVD coatings. The unique properties of BALIMED ARGENTA at a glance.

  • New-generation PVD coatings doped with 2 to 5% silver, therefore high antimicrobial efficacy
  • Antimicrobial activity confirmed by ASTM 2180
  • Log 3 reduction after autoclave cycles (50 times)
  • No cytotoxic effect (ISO 10993-5)
  • Autoclavable

We have FDA Master Files for our BALIMED coatings which include technical and safety information. Our Master Files will support your submission efforts, and can even help to reduce submission times.  Please reach us if you need more information for your submissions to FDA.
