MicroBlock’s gel contains benzethonium chloride (BEC), a known antiviral agent. Its antimicrobial properties reduce the risk of contamination by killing disease-causing microbes. By preventing these microbes from spreading, patients and staff are better protected from healthcare-associated infections. MicroBlock is effective at eliminating common bacterial threats such as:
- E. cloacae (CRE)
- S. aureus (MRSA)
- E. coli (ESBL)
- E. faecalis (VRE)
- P. aeruginosa and A. baumannii (Multi-Drug Resistant).
