Antimicrobial alginate dressing for moderately to heavily exuding wounds.
Ag is an antimicrobial alginate dressing – for when you need an antimicrobial action to reduce bioburden.
An international consensus states that an antimicrobial action is indicated to help reduce bioburden in infected wounds and act as an antimicrobial barrier in wounds at high risk of infection or re-infection
. Melgisorb Ag has been shown to inactivate wound relevant pathogens (bacteria and fungi) within four hours for up to 14 days, as shown in vitro.
Melgisorb Ag is able to manage high volumes of exudate. The alginate fibres absorb large amounts of exudate, forming a soft gel – which creates a moist environment and promotes wound healing.
- Highly absorbent
- Rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity
- Designed for moderately to heavily exuding cavity and flat wounds
