Bactiguard

A Swedish medical device company developing and providing infection prevention solutions

Bactiguards mission is to increase patient safety and save lives. To achieve this mission, they develop and supply infection prevention solutions which reduce the risk of healthcare associated infections and the use of antibiotics. In this way, they save significant costs for healthcare and the society at large.

Bactiguard’s product portfolio, Bactiguard Infection Protection (BIP) prevents healthcare associated infections in the urinary tract, the respiratory tract and the bloodstream. In these areas of the body, two-thirds of all healthcare associated infections occur, and they are often caused by medical devices.

Bactiguard was founded in 2005, but their technology is almost a hundred years old. It stems from the Swedish Nobel prize laureate in Physics 1912, Gustav Dahlén.
