ColActive® Transfer (Wound Contact Layer)
ColActive® Transfer is a porous, advanced wound contact layer dressing composed of collagen and sodium alginate provided in a sterile sheet.
• Stimulates wound healing responses
• Absorbs and transfers wound fluid
• Maintains a moist environment at wound surface
• Protects wound bed
ColActive® Transfer is indicated for the management of full- and partial-thickness wounds including pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies, venous ulcers, second-degree burns, donor and graft sites, abrasions and dehisced surgical wounds. May be used under compression.
ColActive® Transfer should not be used on third-degree burns or on patients with a known allergy or sensitivity to animal-derived collagen or any other ingredient.
ColActive® Transfer may be used on wounds that have visible signs of infection only when the wound has been disinfected prior to application with an appropriate antimicrobial. If signs of infection are present, the wound should be evaluated and an appropriate therapy initiated. If sensitivity to ColActive® Transfer develops, discontinue use. ColActive® Transfer dressings may be used under compression therapy under the supervision of a health care provider.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Prior to application, the wound bed should be debrided and then irrigated with an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water. The dressing should line the entire wound bed and can be cut to size. For heavily exudating wounds, the dressing should be applied directly to the wound bed. For dry wounds or wounds with minimal exudate, the dressing should be pre-moistened with distilled water. The dressing should be covered with a suitable secondary dressing. Dressing may be changed daily or as good nursing practices dictate.
Remove secondary dressing with care. Gently remove ColActive® Transfer ensuring that the dressing removal does not damage delicate newly-formed tissues. If dry, rehydrate dressing with distilled or sterile water to aid in removal. Cleanse the wound site using an appropriate wound cleanser or distilled water prior to application of a new ColActive® Transfer dressing as per directions for use.
ColActive® Transfer should be covered with an appropriate secondary dressing.
