Therapeutic Class

Iodine compounds (Anti-septic Preparations)


Povidone Iodine contains Povidone-Iodine which is a complex of iodine and an organic polymer, povidone. This polymerization makes this superior to ordinary elemental iodine. It prolongs the germicidal activity of iodine by liberating elemental iodine slowly. Consequently it has a lower toxicity than elemental iodine.

It gives rapid microbicidal activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, protozoa, viruses and fungi/yeasts. It is also sporicidal. It is the only microbicide with this broad spectrum of activity. It is non-staining, exerts prolong germicidal action and is also active in the presence of soap, blood, serum, pus, mucosal secretions and water.

Dosage & Administration

For Preoperative and Postoperative washing by Operating Personnel: Wet hands and forearms with water. Pour about 5 ml of Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub on the palm of the hand and spread over both hands and forearms. Without adding more water, rub the Scrub thoroughly over all areas for about five minutes. Use a brush if desired. Clean thoroughly under fingernails. Add a little water and develop copious suds. Rinse thoroughly under running water. Complete the wash by scrubbing with another 5 ml of Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub in the same way.

For Preoperative use on Patients: After the skin area is shaved, wet it with water. Apply Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub (1 ml is sufficient to cover an area of 20-30 square inches), develop lather and scrub thoroughly for about five minutes. Rinse off by aid of sterile gauze saturated with water.

For use in the Physician’s Office: Use for washing whenever a germicidal soap is required.
