• Provides quick and sustained (up to seven days) antimicrobial activity against a broad spectrum of wound pathogens including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli
• Silver is completely and evenly distributed in the ionic state
• Does not require the use of sterile water to activate antimicrobial action
• Inhibits bacterial cell division which eliminates the development of resistance
• Designed to create the optimal moist environment vital to promote wound healing
• Effective exudate management, helping reduce the risk of periwound maceration
• Available with integrated foam backing for increased absorption and comfort
• Easy application and atraumatic removal
• Non-staining, non-irritating, and not made with natural rubber latex


Algidex Ag® Foam is indicated for the management of wet, moist or dry wounds including: venous ulcers, pressure ulcers (stages 1-4), dermal lesions (or secreting skin injuries), second-degree burns, or donor sites.


Algidex Ag® Foam should not be used for the treatment of the following: third-degree burns, ulcers resulting from infections, lesions associated with active vasculitis or patients with known sensitivity to alginates.

Warnings and Precautions

When visible signs of infection are present in the wound, Algidex Ag® Foam may only be used when proper systemic medical treatment addresses the cause of the infection.
Algidex Ag® Foam should be removed and the wound thoroughly cleaned prior to hyperbaric oxygenation or any other therapy where the presence of metals is contraindicated.
Algidex Ag® Foam silver alginate wound dressings are for external use and they may not be surgically implanted.
Discontinue use if signs of sensitivity appear.
