Swedish medtech company Bactiguard has signed SC. Alpha Medical SRL. for the Romanian market. Alpha Medical will now be introducing Bactiguard’s complete portfolio for infection control, including urinary, intravenous and respiratory catheters.
Last week Bactiguard proudly announced that they signed distributors in Poland, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Slovenia.
Christian Kinch, CEO of Bactiguard:
“This month alone we have signed 6 countries around the world for our infection control portfolio, and now Romania. Like in many parts of the world, HAI’s is a big problem for Romanian hospitals. With our unique solution, our Bactiguard coating, we hope to help the Romanian hospitals to reduce HAI’s, thereby reducing the use of antibiotics and save money. I am very much looking forward to working with Alpha Medical and together we can not only save money, we will also save lives”.
The Bactiguard® coating has been applied to urinary catheters in the U.S. since 1995. Over 125 million Bactiguard coated catheters have been used in clinical practice all over the world. The Bactiguard technology consists of an extremely thin noble metal coating which reduces bacterial adhesion and is biocompatible.
