ALPHARETTA, Ga. and JOHN’S CREEK, Ga. – July 17th, 2018 – Halyard and Belintra today announced the U.S. broad availability of Halyard packaging and Belintra storage and transportation solutions for healthcare facilities made possible through an exclusive dealership agreement between the companies for an initial term of three years.

Approximately 300,000 surgical site infections occur annually in U.S. hospitals, resulting in an estimated 9,000 attributable deaths.
Halyard’s state-of-the-art SMART-FOLD* and QUICK-CHECK* sterilization wraps provide industry-leading protection against contamination of surgical instruments. In the recent scientific study, “Sterility maintenance study: Dynamic evaluation of sterilized rigid containers and wrapped instrument trays to prevent bacterial ingress,” published in the American Journal of Infection Control, sterilization wrap was shown to maintain 100 percent sterility post-sterilization compared to new and in-use rigid containers, of which 87 percent were positive for bacterial contamination post-sterilization.
Belintra transport and storage systems, completed with accessories as part of Belintra’s complete Sterisystem® Logistics Flow Solution, help organizations adhere to AAMI Standard 79 guidelines for maintenance of the sterility of processed items until the point of use.
This agreement marries Halyard’s clinical expertise, superior sterilization wrap products and long-standing relationships in the OR to Belintra’s expertise in the SPD and OR and innovative storage and transport solutions for wrapped surgical instrument trays, providing a unique, comprehensive solution for fulfilling surgical instrument sterility and helping to improve hospitals’ clinical efficiency.
