Another advancement from Polyfuze is a product called PREVENT Antimicrobial. PREVENT can be incorporated into the usual warning and biohazard labels offered by Polyfuze while opening the door to creative “outside the box” uses such as labels for grab points on Sharps containers, lift points on waste bins, and more.
