Bactiguard has won a tender for urinary catheters for the southern region (Region Skåne) in Sweden, which enables healthcare providers in both primary and secondary care to purchase Bactiguards’ anti-infective urinary catheters from 1 August 2017. The contract initially runs until 30 April 2018 and can be extended on an annual basis until 30 April 2020.
“We have really had a successful start this year with respect to tenders in Sweden. Our infection prevention technology is gaining broader and broader acceptance and Region Skåne now follows the Stockholm County Council’s example in procuring our urinary catheters.The Western region in Sweden (Västra Götalandsregionen) has also introduced an infection prevention category in their ongoing tender. The increased focus on antibiotic resistance is very timely for us, “said Nina Nilsson, SVP Sales and Marketing.
“Just like in Stockholm, the contract for Region Skåne covers both primary and secondary care, which makes it easier for patients who are normally treated by primary care providers, but sometimes need to seek emergency care for example in case of an urinary tract infection,” Nina Nilsson continues.
The contract runs from August this year to April 2018, with the option to extend it on an annual basis. It is a supplement to the current contract for urology products and covers the Bactiguard BIP Foley Catheter Silicone, a product that has been evaluated by the region for some time already.
