The Merlin One Step Prep Applicator was designed by clinicians, for clinicians. The applicator contains a trusted antiseptic combination of Povidone Iodine and alcohol that is fast acting, broad spectrum and exceeds the FDA TFM requirements. It also contains a viscous solution to help reduce dripping and pooling of antiseptic. Merlin contains 39 mL of solution, which is more than several other applicators on the market, helping clinicians reduce the need for pulling multiple applicators helping case efficiency. In addition, the unique sponge head design allows for easier access to fingers and toes. The directions for use allow for scrubbing, creating friction to remove additional transient bacteria from the skin contributing to overall infection prevention. The Merlin One Step Prep applicator is also available in an alcohol-free version.
