Surgical Accessories Infection Prevention

Pre Operative Solutions

Since many of the microorganisms responsible for surgical site infections reside on the patient's own skin, pre-operative skin preparation helps reduce risk of surgical site infections. 3M provides solutions for pre-operative hair removal, patient skin prepping and OR draping.


Drapes & Gowns

Surgial Draping

3M surgical drapes are impervious to liquid strikethrough which can help to reduce bacterial transfer and subsequent contamination of the surgical site.

DuraPrep™ Surgical Solution

Surgical Prepping

3M™ DuraPrep™ Surgical Solution (Iodine Povacrylex [0.7% available Iodine] and Isopropyl Alcohol, 74% w/w) Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation

A cost effective patient skin prepping solution that meets AORN and CDC guidelines for the reduction of surgical site infections.

Remover Lotion

3M™ Remover Lotion

Because 3M™ DuraPrep™ Surgical Solution (Iodine Povacrylex [0.7% available iodine] and Isopropyl Alcohol, 74% w/w) Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation dries to a water insoluble film, it is not easily removed by fluids. Formulated with moisturizers for the skin, this lotion removes DuraPrep solution.
