• Comprised of a proprietary blend of mannuronic (high gelling) and guluronic (high wet-strength) alginic acids designed to gel well while keeping its physical integrity for intact removal
• High absorption capacity also helps to reduce the risk of tissue maceration and allows for increased time between dressing changes
• Does not leave any silver coated nylon thread residue in the wound upon removal of the dressing


For over-the-counter use, ALGICELL® Ag Antimicrobial Alginate Dressing may be used for abrasions and minor lacerations, cuts, scalds and burns.

Under the supervision of a health care professional, ALGICELL® Ag Antimicrobial Alginate Dressing is an effective barrier to bacterial penetration in moderate to heavily exuding wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers (venous insufficiency ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology), pressure ulcers (partial- and full-thickness), donor sites, and traumatic and surgical wounds.


ALGICELL® Ag Antimicrobial Alginate Dressing is not indicated for treatment of third-degree burns, patients with a known sensitivity to alginates or silver or control of heavy bleeding
