The 3M Skin and Nasal Antiseptic (Povidonelodine Solution 5% w/w (0.5% available iodine) USP) Patient Preoperative Skin Preparation is the first product designed to reduce Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) in the nasal passages or nares. It is applied in the healthcare setting prior to surgery to help prevent surgical site infections. Clinical studies show that the antiseptic kills 99.5% of S. aureus in the nares in one hour and maintains that level for at least 12 hours.
