Calvo Izquierdo participate ANDE 2022

We are pleased to inform you that last June 1st until Friday June 3rd we were present at the 32nd NATIONAL NURSING MANAGEMENT NURSES CONFERENCES this year were held in Toledo (Spain), better known as The Imperial City.

We shared experiences with the national health sector, sharing experiences, generating new learning, giving visibility to our products and, of course, we tried among all health sectors a stronger, more compact and at the same time closer health.

 

MEDICA 2021

In our stand we were showing our medical-sanitary products, since they are of great help to the nursing sector at national level.

They were three intensive days of learning and sharing knowledge that help us to grow every day.

 

Thanks to all the health professionals who shared their time with us.

Calvo Izquierdo returns to MEDICA 2021.

MEDICA is the leading trade fair for the global medical sector.

Its high level of international influence and its reputation as a leading source of information in the field of medicine make it the meeting place for the international medical industry. The world’s largest event for the medical sector has been firmly established in the calendar of all experts for more than 40 years.

There are many reasons why MEDICA is so unique. Firstly, the event is the world’s largest medical trade fair: it attracts several thousand exhibitors from more than 50 countries in the pavilions. In addition, every year, leading individuals from the fields of business, research and politics participate in this top-level event, along with tens of thousands of national and international experts and decision-makers from the industry. MEDICA includes an extensive exhibition and an ambitious framework program, which together present the entire spectrum of innovations for ambulatory and clinical care.

And how could it be otherwise Calvo Izquierdo S.L. participated in this edition.

MEDICA 2021
In the past days November 15,16,17,18 we have been at our stand, four days of full power, knowledge transfer and networking in the face-to-face format.
 
We are very happy with the results obtained. We hope that the next MEDICA 2022 will be as successful as this one has been.
 
See you next year!
We expand the production capacity

We expand the production capacity

CALVO IZQUIERDO SL has been expanding its production capacity for months. This allows us to provide a better service to all our customers around the world.

Our objective has always been the same, to provide our clients with a high quality product at a competitive price.

For this expansion in the CALVO IZQUIERDO, S.L. through the line “Aid for investments to improve the competitiveness and sustainability of industrial SMEs in the sectors of the Comunitat Valenciana, within the third phase of implementation of the Strategic Plan of the Valencian industry for the year 2020″, convened by the CONSELLERIA DE CONOMINA SOSTENIBLE, SECTORS PRODUCTS, TRADE AND LABOUR” has received a grant of 40. 40,952.73 for the execution of the project “Expansion of the production capacity of the company Calvo Izquierdo, S.L.”.

New R&D project based on natural xerophytic plant extracts

New R&D project based on natural xerophytic plant extracts

CALVO IZQUIERDO, S.L. participates in the R&D project “PRONOS – R&D of new antimicrobial products based on natural extracts of xerophytic plants for prevention of nosocomial infections by cleaning surfaces and skin”, funded by the AVI and the European Union through the ERDF. This is a business value chain consolidation project, which started in February 2021 and will end in December 2022. In addition to CALVO IZQUIERDO, S.L., the companies VIVEROS CANÓS, S.L., ESPECIALIDADES FARMACÉUTICAS CENTRUM, S.A., ATQ QUIMYSER, S.L. and KOROTT, S.L. are also participating.

The main objective of the project is to investigate ingredients obtained from natural extracts of xerophytic (dry environment) plants with antimicrobial properties, for the development of surface cleaning and skin care products in the healthcare environment, which contribute to the prevention of nosocomial infections (hospital-acquired infections).

It is a health concern that the efficacy of the arsenal of biocidal substances is increasingly diminishing in the face of the growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) of the microorganisms responsible for infections. It is estimated that between 6 and 10% of patients admitted to a hospital may suffer a nosocomial infection. This problem changes the course of hospitalization and exposes the patient to new risk situations, increasing hospital morbidity and mortality, hospital stay and health care costs. Research in this field is now focusing on ingredients of natural origin, for two reasons: they have been shown to be effective against dangerous pathogens; and their renewable and biodegradable origin is environmentally friendly and compatible with people’s health.

As a result of the project, it is expected to create and consolidate a value chain for the manufacture of products with antimicrobial activity, based on active ingredients of natural origin. Thus, as a result of the project, it is expected to obtain products of natural origin for surface cleaning and skin care and hygiene, with antimicrobial activity for sanitary use in hospitals. Specifically, CALVO IZQUIERDO, S.L. expects to develop new bandages with antimicrobial finish for the prevention of infections in the sanitary field.

The project impacts the value chain of natural products with antimicrobial properties, from the study and selection of the species, to obtaining the functional active principles, through their stabilization and conservation, to their ultimate application in health products.

Calvo Izquierdo develop the project VENDAGEN 2.0.

Calvo Izquierdo develop the project VENDAGEN 2.0.

The Valencian company Calvo Izquierdo SL. Carried out the project VENDAGEN 2.0. (2013-2015) “Research and development of a new generation of bandages for medical and sports applications”.

The project is supported and funded by the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).

VENDAGEN 2.0 is carried out by a multidisciplinary team integrated by personnel from Calvo Izquierdo SL, and also from the Textile Technological Institute (AITEX). 

AITEX is a N061 notified body with 17050 accredited laboratory with complementary competences and capabilities and with great experience in different fields such as medical and hospital textiles, biomedicine, chemistry, physics, biomechanics, engineering, design, materials science, computer science, etc.

This project encompasses two very important lines of research for the company, such as obtaining a 100% textile cohesive bandage and obtaining sports bandages with a cold/heat effect.

Through this project, a new generation of bandages was researched and developed with compounds containing a selection of natural active ingredients such as:

        • Cayenne pepper

        • Camphor.

        • Arnica.

        • Menthol.

        • Eucalyptus.

        • Etc…

Objectives:

Evaluation of 6 types of bandages impregnated with active ingredients designed to provide coolness and warmth to athletes during their use.

    1. Analyze the effects on skin temperature of the impregnated bandages compared to the control bandages in an objective way, by means of infrared thermography and infrared gun.
    2. To study if the impregnated bandages have noticeable effects after soccer training on the comfort perceived by the participants and to see which aspects were perceived as more or less comfortable.
    3. To evaluate the participants’ overall assessment of the new product in terms of satisfaction and sensations when using it.
