Zorflex® is a 100% activated carbon wound contact dressing that benefits from a triple action. Works by adsorbing bacteria and other pathogens onto dressing surface.
• 3-way action: naturally removes bacteria, conductive and manages odor
• Attracts and entraps bacteria, ruptures cell wall and draws endotoxins into the micropores of the dressing
• Does not put anything into the wound and so is safe to use over extended periods of treatment
• Carbon derived from a natural source
• Contains no antiseptic agents
• Works by adsorbing bacteria and other pathogens onto dressing surface
• Exhibits no donation of chemical agents or fibers to wound bed
• Exhibits no systemic absorption
Zorflex® is indicated for use over discharging partial- and full-thickness wounds such as: cavity and trauma wounds, surgical sites, fungating carcinomas, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, donor and recipient graft sites.
Use sterile water to cleanse, irrigate or moisten wound. Use of oil-based products, topical ointments or saline will reduce the effectiveness of the dressing.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight (5°C-30°C, 41°F-86°F).
