Unique, Proprietary Silver Accentuating Chemistry
ICET Advantage :Proprietary silver chemistry with sustained release for superior antimicrobial performance.
Antimicrobial coated catheters are an attractive solution for Infection prevention in short term use (less than 7 days) and to date the only two major silver based Foley catheters in the market have not shown much clinical promise, though silver is an excellent biocide, with a good safety history, used in various medical devices for successful infection control (FDA CDRH data base). Rather than cast doubt on the efficacy of silver as a biocide based on the one type of Foley catheter type evaluated, many clinicians and the FDA believe that NOT all silver products are the same; the efficacy depends on the continuous delivery mechanism of silver from the coating on the surface and that clinical trials of new silver-coated urological products remain critically important. Our product TIC is not “yet another silver catheter” but may prove to be a cut above the rest.
Protective Materials : ICET is playing the lead role in combining its CB protective technology with the special fabrics and to provide integrated highly breathable air permeable and impermeable fabric composites with significant comfort, highly reduced thermal burden, CB , Toxic Industrial Chemical protection, ( active and passive) FR, DWR and nIR features. Added features are novel moisture transport, odor absorption and lightweight materials.
Water Treatment : Through cooperative efforts between the MWRA ( Mass Water Resources Authority) and the state funded STEP (Strategic Enviro-Partnership) program, a pilot demonstration at two sites—one a large hospital and another a research institution—was successfully completed. The challenge to the participating vendors was to operate a pilot unit continuously for 6-to-8 weeks at these facilities and achieve less than 1 ppb levels of mercury discharged from these complex wastewaters.
ICET sorbent surpassed providing consistently below 0.2ppb in the treated effluent, even when large spikes of mercury occurred. The media was also found resistant to biofouling.
