How does the antimicrobial agent work on a New Gear Medical bag?
Our antimicrobial agent is introduced to the bag material during the manufacturing process. This broad spectrum efficacy agent affects the health of the microbe, inhibiting its growth and causing it to die. This built-in antimicrobial protection means bacteria and other microbes cannot survive on the bag, providing infection control.
Our products have been independently tested and meet international standards AATCC 30.
