Bactiguard Technology is a thin, durable and non-eluting noble metal (gold, silver and palladium alloy coating) that is designed to firmly attach to the implant surface.

When the coating comes into contact with moisture, the noble metals create a unique galvanic (or battery) effect that generates tiny pico currents on the implant surface, designed to reduce bacterial adhesion and subsequent risk of biofilm formation.

To address the growing concerns over antibiotic resistance and to ensure responsible antibiotic stewardship, Bactiguard Technology provides an alternative non-antibiotic-releasing approach to tackle biofilms.

Bacteria can produce Extracellular Polymeric Substance (EPS) to shield themselves from both mechanical and chemical attacks. Bactisure Wound Lavage was specifically designed to remove these structurally resistant forms of bacteria. Our solution is designed to physically deconstruct the protective EPS matrix, making bacteria more susceptible to traditional antibiotics and the body’s normal defense mechanisms.

Once an infection has been diagnosed, the gold standard for PJI revision involves a one- or two-stage procedure, which can include debridement, implant removal, placement of antibiotic spacer and re-implantation after extended antibiotic treatment, at least six weeks after the first stage.4   Zimmer Biomet offers a range of hip and knee revision systems designed to meet clinical needs and simplify the complexity of revision THA and TKA.
