Many healthcare professionals understandably
assume that all antiseptics are sterile. This is
actually not true.
THE FACTS: The Association for Professionals in
Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) has
stated, “All skin preparation products should be
manufactured to be sterile.”*
Aplicare® provides the only sterile preoperative skin
preparation antiseptics suitable for use in the OR.
Each product lot is sterilized to a 10-6 assurance
level. While many other products have sterile outer
packaging, the antiseptic inside the package —
arguably the most important component because it
touches patients’ skin — is not sterilized.
THE APLICARE® DIFFERENCE: For product safety
and patient care, enhance your infection prevention
program with the only sterile skin antiseptics.
