Avert™ Surface Active Antimicrobial Coating

Avert™ is the only anti-microbial coating to combine a non-thrombogenic component with an anti-microbial component and offers the best in technical achievement and technological advancement. The unique polymer formulation of Avert™ is biocompatible, lubricious and anti-microbial.

Avert™ inhibits protein deposition and bacterial adhesion, thereby preventing biofilm formation. The active component is co-polymerised with a non-thrombogenic functionality and a stabilising monomer to provide a stable, non-leaching coating assembly, which displays a contact-kill mechanism for anti-microbial activity. The coating has demonstrated long-term protection against infection and displays a broad spectrum of activity against a variety of bacterial strains, including MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).

*Avert™ is currently licensed to B.Braun for its central venous catheter for long-term protection against infection, delivering maximum safety to the patient.
