Our SURIGSEAL topical skin adhesive product family is made with a 2-octyl cyanoacrylate formulation, which features a greater breaking strength and broader uses in clinical applications than existing n-butyl cyanoacrylates. Patients are protected after application: SURGISEAL forms a barrier on the skin, preventing bacteria and water from reaching the wound, reducing the chance of infection and allowing the patients to shower immediately. No formula on the market measures higher in flexibility than the proprietary SURGISEAL formula. Flexibility contributes to patient comfort and preserve the integrity of the adhesive, preventing premature sloughing. SURGISEAL adhesive: Superior Flexibility and Optimal Strength.

SecurePortIV Catheter Securement Adhesive
Introducing SecurePortIV™ topical adhesive for catheter securement and site protection.
Peripheral intravenous catheter insertion is the most common invasive hospital procedure performed worldwide, but its extremely prone to complications, with an overall failure rate that has been estimated at 43%. Similarly, millions of central venous catheters are placed every year with prospective studies showing a removal rate due to complications of 8%. But with SecurePortIV™, all that is changing.
SecurePortIV™ is the first and only cyanoacrylate adhesive that is FDA-cleared for securement of vascular access devices. Simpler, stronger and safer, it provides big benefits and advantages over traditional methods of securement.
3X stronger and infinitely simpler securement than transparent film dressings alone and superior adhesiveness compared with mechanical securement devices
Reduces catheter movement, migration, and dislodgement
Effectively seals the catheter insertion site
Unique double defense against catheter-related bloodstream infections: Immobilizes skin flora that cant be removed by standard skin prep, and our octyl cyanoacrylate blend formulation is bactericidal on contact in vitro
Theres a whole new approach to vascular access device securement.
Wyomissing, PA., October 2017 – Adhezion Biomedical, LLC is pleased to announce the 510(k) clearance of SecurePortIVTM catheter securement adhesive, a highly versatile cyanoacrylate formulation which can be used with short-term or long-term vascular access devices to enhance device securement, seal the catheter insertion site, protect the patient from catheter related blood stream infection, and provide a water-resistant barrier – all in a single product.
SecurePortIVTM comes in a patented ergonomic applicator containing a proprietary cyanoacrylate formulation tailored specifically for use with vascular access devices. SecurePortIV™ is applied to the skin under the hub of vascular access devices and forms a film that holds the catheter to the skin to reduce catheter movement, migration, and/or dislodgment. SecurePortIV is also applied over the catheter-skin insertion site forming a seal proven to immobilize surface bacteria and fungi, preventing them from entering into the catheter skin entry site while also providing a moisture-proof barrier. Additionally, SecurePortIV effectively seals the catheter insertion site which can help reduce the frequency of dressing changes.
Pete Molinaro, Adhezions CEO and Chairman said, “SecurePortIVTM is the only cyanoacrylate adhesive in the world that has been cleared by the FDA for use with vascular access devices. SecurePortIVTM has tremendous potential to greatly simplify the care and maintenance of vascular access devices while providing extraordinary value to healthcare facilities which can normally be achieved only through the combination of multiple different securement and catheter site management products.” About Adhezion Biomedical LLC Adhezion Biomedical is privately held medical device company based in Wyomissing, PA.
