In a study4 simulating surgical use, the immediate bactericidal effect of HIBICLENS® after a single six-minute scrub resulted in a 99.9% reduction in resident bacterial flora, with a reduction of 99.98% after the eleventh scrub. Reductions on surgically gloved hands were maintained over the six-hour test period. HIBICLENS® displays persistent antimicrobial action. In one study5, 93% of a radiolabeled formulation of HIBICLENS® remained present on uncovered skin after five hours.
