The Science




After contamination tests were performed it was clear…

Comparative Protocols

Commercially Available Surgical/Medical Tape vs.

TrioMed Antimicrobial Medical Adhesive Tape

A comparative protocol was executed for a period of 5 hours, during this time frame the adhesive non-woven of both the tapes and dressings, currently found in hospitals, were placed on a patient with the protective paper backer in place. Following this; in controlled conditions, the paper backer was removed and the non-woven (adhesive side, face down) was plated.


External Surface of Currently Used Tape

Internal Surface of Currently Used Tape

Conclusion: As scientifically demonstrated above, ALL medical tapes and dressings' external surfaces become contaminated by microorganisms which then migrate under the adhesives and also directly through, seriously compromising wound healing.

TrioMed External Surface Results

TrioMed Internal Surface Results

Conclusion: As scientifically demonstrated above, TrioMed medical tapes and dressings' external surfaces eliminate the contamination by microorganisms therefore also eliminating any microbial migration under the adhesive or through. TrioMed provides the ultimate interactive antimicrobial shield.


Worldwide scientific studies undeniably demonstrate that medical/surgical tapes commonly used in health care settings are contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and may serve as a significant source of infection.
