3M™ Ioban™ 2 Antimicrobial Incise Drape contains an iodophor impregnated adhesive. It provides a sterile operative surface at the onset of surgery, immobilizing bacteria beneath the drape and reducing the risk of surgical site contamination. In a published study1, it was shown that drape lift at the wound edge may be associated with a 6-fold increase in surgical site infection.
