August thru October substitution option: BD ChloraPrep™ Single Swabsticks* 1.75 mL Applicators #260100 will continue to be a substitution option for BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL Single sterile customers through end of October. We will be allocating at 100% of customers’ 1 mL historical demand. Existing Single Swabsticks customers will not be impacted with this substitution plan. BD will not be auto substituting customers’ orders and therefore we ask that if customers desire to substitute this product, they change their orders to BD ChloraPrep Single Swabsticks.

November and Beyond substitution option: BD continues to work through all quality system requirements for the new Medline Skin Prep Convenience Kit distributed by BD to ensure customer satisfaction through continued supply during our BD ChloraPrep 1mL supply constraint. Key details around offering, timing, pricing, and product code information will be shared shortly.

If you currently purchase kits containing BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL from third party suppliers, you should only expect minimal impact.

It is important to note that your kitting partners may not be able to take on incremental demand of kits containing BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL beyond your typical order volume.
