Medi-Flex Chloraprep One-Step

ChloraPrep One-Step (chlorhexidine gluconate 2% and isopropyl alcohol 70%), a new commercial antiseptic from Medi-Flex Hospital Products, Inc., has been proven to significantly reduce the number of microorganisms on intact skin. Although 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol have been used commonly for more than four decades in Europe and other parts of the world, ChloraPrep is the first patient preoperative skin preparation with this antiseptic combination to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. ChloraPrep is packaged in a unique, wing-shaped delivery device that provides a simple, one-step application. Engineered to keep clinician's hands away from the preparation site, the applicator facilitates aseptic preparation of the patient's skin.
