  • AQUACEL® Ag Advantage enhanced Hydrofiber® dressings with silver and strengthening fiber are soft, sterile dressings made from two layers of 1.2% ionic silver impregnated sodium carboxymethylcellulose fiber with added ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt (EDTA) and benzethonium chloride and stitched together with strengthening fibers.

  • Cutimed® Sorbion® Sorbact® is a bacteria-binding super absorbent dressing. Super absorbent core absorbs and retains moderate to high levels of exudate, reducing the risk of maceration, even under compression. Wound contact layer is coated with Sorbact® Technology to safely and effectively bind bacteria without a chemically active agent.

  • Drawtex® wound dressing's capillary, hydroductive and electrostatic actions, made possible by exclusive LevaFiber™ Technology, allow it to remove debris, control excessive wound exudate and draw out bacteria and harmful MMPs, setting the stage for wound healing or closure.

  • Simpurity™ Fibergel Ag is a gelling fiber dressing that contains ionic silver to inhibit bacteria from growing in the wound bed, reducing the risk of infection.

  • 3M™ Tegaderm™ Alginate Ag Silver Dressings provide the antimicrobial silver, soft-gelling absorbency and fiber strength that professionals need to manage critically colonized wounds at increased risk of infection.

  • 3M™ Tegaderm™ Superabsorber Dressing locks in exudate to prevent moisture-associated complications, even under compression. Use as a primary or secondary dressing.

  • ALGICELL® Ag Antimicrobial Alginate Dressing is a high gelling, high strength dressing that utilizes a sophisticated ionic transfer technology to deliver low levels of silver.

  • ALGICELL® Alginate Wound Dressings are highly absorptive, high integrity products designed to manage moderate to heavily exudating partial- or full-thickness wounds.

  • Algidex Ag® Thin Sheet wound dressing features a combination of ionic silver, alginate and maltodextrin that provides immediate and sustained antimicrobial activity.
