Covalon Technologies has unveiled its SilverCoat Antimicrobial Silicone Foley catheter at the American Urological Association 2012 Annual Meeting (AUA) in Atlanta, Georgia, US.

Covalon Chief Executive Officer Brian Pedlar said the company has demonstrated that its antimicrobial coating outperforms silver coated Foley catheters in killing the bacteria most commonly associated with urinary tract infections.

"The AUA provides Covalon with a great opportunity to showcase our urological care products to an international audience, including close to three hundred leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors," Pedlar added.

Covalon said it will also showcase its SilverCoat Foley Catheter along with IV Clear antimicrobial silicone adhesive film dressing at AUA till 23May 2012.

The company is also planning to exhibit its advanced wound and antimicrobial silicone adhesive technology.

The company’s silicone antimicrobial wound dressings combine silver and chlorhexidine in the adhesive, thus providing comfort and protection throughout.
