Skin Preparation

ChloraPrep® Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation Product Line

The 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol formulation provides rapid-acting and persistent antiseptic activity against a broad spectrum of microorganisms.1

ChloraPrep applicators promote gentle friction scrub to help the solution penetrate the first five layers of the stratum corneum, where 80% of microorganisms reside.2 The patented ChloraPrep applicator promotes aseptic technique and reduces the risk of direct hand-to-patient contact, reducing the risk of cross-contamination.3

See our updated labels for 3mL, Frepp, Sepp and Swab Sticks to safely use our products that reduce drying time. The label change does not affect the 10.5 and 26 mL applicators.
