Trademarks: Tamed Iodine (West)
Literature References: The term iodophor may be applied to any product in which surface active agents (such as nonoxynol, q.v.) or polymers (such as polyvinylpyrrolidone, cf. povidone-iodine) act as carriers and solubilizing agents for iodine. Other examples: Biopal CVL-10; Dermevan; Idonyx; Iobac (West Chemical) ; Ioprep (J & J) ; Iosan (West Chemical) ; Kleenodyne; Rhudane; Showersan; Wescodyne (West Chemical) ; Westamine X. An iodophor usually enhances the bactericidal activity of iodine, reduces vapor pressure and odor. Staining is almost nonexistent and wide dilution with water is possible.
