WebCol Alcohol Preps are wound care products featuring a premium non woven pad material saturated with isopropyl alcohol. They are the result of a sophisticated manufacturing process that combines the non woven pad with a precise mixture of 70% isopropyl alcohol.
A 70% concentration of isopropyl alcohol in water is the ideal combination for disinfectant purposes.The water in the solution opens up the membrane pores of the bacteria that the disinfectant is targeting.Once the pores are open, they can act as a gateway for the isopropyl alcohol to invade the bacteria. The precise manufacturing process used to produce these pads ensures the maximum effectiveness of WebCol Alcohol Preps as a disinfecting agent.
You can use alcohol prep pads to cleanse the skin before an injection or any form of medical procedure. They will reduce the risk of introduction of a bacterial or other infection to the injection site. The pad provides maximum absorbency for use in scrubbing and cleansing the target area.
Health care professionals can also use them to clean instruments (e.g. stethoscopes) prior to using them to examine a patient.
The WebCol Preps are economically priced. They also come in a variety of conveniently sized packages to facilitate their use for a wide variety of purposes. The pads are single use only.
