BARDEX® I.C. Infection Control Foley Catheters

Product Images:
The BARDEX® I.C. anti-infective latex Foley catheter is clinically proven to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Incorporating a technologically-advanced formulation consisting of BACTI-GUARD®* silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel, the BARDEX® I.C. Foley catheter dramatically reduces bacterial adherence and minimises biofilm formation.

The occurrence of urinary tract infection is 3.7 times greater in patients catheterised with a standard catheter than in patients catheterised with the BARDEX® I.C. Foley catheter with BACTI-GUARD®* silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel.

Recommended indwelling time not to exceed 28 days2.
