keragel® is a thick hydrogel rich in keratin protein that delivers Replicine™ Functional Keratin® to the wound while maintaining a moisture rich environment.
• Demonstrated faster epithelialization rates and more robust skin after healing in numerous clinical studies
• In vitro studies have shown that Replicine™ Functional Keratin® increases the rates of proliferation and migration of keratinocyte cells (which play a key role in epithelialization) and that the migrating keratinocytes express increased levels of collagen 4 and collagen 7 which are critical for basal membrane integrity
• Can speed healing, improve the healed outcome and reduce cost of care
keragel® is indicated for use on venous leg ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, skin graft donor sites, first- and second-degree burns, superficial injuries, cuts, abrasions and surgical wounds.
Contraindicated for use on patients with a sensitivity to keratin.

Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Cleanse and debride the wound in accordance with normal procedures.
Ensure that the skin surrounding the wound is dry.
The tube is opened using the piercer cap to break the nozzle seal. To ensure sterility, sanitize the piercer cap before using.
Apply a 3mm to 6mm (1/8" to 1/4") layer of keragel® to cover the entire wound surface.
Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing if needed.
Molecular Biologicals provides prescription grade proprietary keratin-enriched products for use in the healing of burns, acute and chronic wounds.
