I-Flow Announces Closing of Acquisition of AcryMed Incorporated

LAKE FOREST, CA | Posted on February 19th, 2008

AcryMed developed the proprietary nanoparticle treatment process for the silver coating on I-Flow's ON-Q® SilverSoakerTM Catheters with SilvaGard® and has been treating the catheters since I-Flow developed the product line in 2005. AcryMed will also manufacture for I-Flow a new line of silver transparent wound-site dressings, which I-Flow expects to bring to market in the first half of this year. In addition to providing silver coating for these I-Flow products, AcryMed is active in researching and developing new wound care technologies and has licensed a portion of these technologies for a range of infection control and wound care products.

AcryMed's patent portfolio consists of a total of 66 worldwide issued and pending patents, including 16 U.S. patents. In addition, its scientific staff includes four Ph.D.s and 10 other scientists who have made AcryMed a leader in silver antimicrobial technologies.
