• Intimately contacts the wound to protect from secondary dressings
• Highly conformable and easy to cut, shape, and contour to wound bed for complete wound coverage
• Maintains structural integrity
• Low adherence helps minimize wound trauma at dressing changes
• Patented collagen matrix acts as a sacrificial substrate for MMPs
• Integrated fluid channels facilitate removal of exudate for balanced moisture and an optimal wound healing environment
• Biocompatible


ColActive® Transfer is indicated for the management of full- and partial-thickness wounds including pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies, venous ulcers, second-degree burns, donor and graft sites, abrasion, dehisced surgical wounds, and traumatic wounds healing by secondary action.


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.

Warnings and Precautions

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.

Mode of Use/Application

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 exuding 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 dictates.

Removal & Change Frequency

Remove secondary dressing with care. Gently remove ColActive® Transfer, ensuring that the dressing removal does not damage delicate newly formed tissue. 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.

Additional Recommended Dressings

ColActive® Transfer should be covered with an appropriate secondary dressing.
