Silver Coated Urinary Catheter FAQs

Is the platform for the Dover Silver Foley Catheter Latex or 100% Silicone?

  • It is a silicone platform. This is the other differing key factor, other than phosphate silver ion technology, which complements the efficient release of ionic silver. Silicone is biologically inert. Latex catheters contain negatively charged proteins which neutralize positively charged silver ions.

What is the difference between Silver Alloy technology, as utilized in Bards comparable catheter, (alloy technology) and the phosphate silver ion technology utilized in the Dover Silver catheter?

  • Older release technologies, such as Silver Oxide (no longer used) and Silver Alloy (Bards technology), only deliver a portion of the applied silver. Elements in the technology bind a percentage of the silver, not allowing it to release. These older technologies are not programmable and are only effective against gram positive bacteria.

What is phosphate ion silver technology?

  • Phosphate ion silver release technology is the latest cutting-edge vehicle to efficiently deliver ionic silver from a hydrogel matrix. The optimal goal of a release technology is to deliver positively charged ionic silver from containment without neutralizing it as it is released. The programmable particle achieves this by dissolving at a predetermined rate, while releasing 100% of the ionic silver contained in the particle make up.
