3M One-Step Patient Prep is a non-alcohol based patient preoperative skin prep that is delivered in a single-use sterile applicator. Developed in response to the needs of operating room managers, infection control practitioners, surgeons and operating room nurses, One-Step delivers improved efficiency in preoperative patient skin preparation. This translates to faster application time, greater resistance to removal during surgery and easy removal after surgery. Unlike aqueous povidone iodine scrub and paint preps, One-Step Prep dries to a microbial film that resists wash-off by blood and saline. The two-minute application of povidone iodine-based solution meets the FDA required efficacy on the abdomen in just two minutes and continues to keep bacteria below baseline through 24 hours postprep.
