SILVERCEL HYDRO-ALGINATE Dressing 11 x 11cm
SILVERCEL™ Hydro-Alginate is a sterile, non-woven pad composed of a high G (guluronic acid) alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and silver coated nylon fibres.
Due to the excellent fluid handling capacity and the prolonged antimicrobial activity
SILVERCEL™ is an ideal dressing for the management of chronic wounds
How does it work?
SILVERCEL™ provides a sustained release of silver ions for up to 7 days, allowing for an effective antimicrobial protection for the entire wear time, depending on the level of exudate.
SILVERCEL™ is effective against more than 150 wound pathogens, including MRSA, MRSE, VRE, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia Coli, Streptococcus pyogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Candida albicans
The unique composition of the dressing manages exudates in
moderate to heavily exuding wounds, promoting a favourable environment for
effective wound management.
- Increases its tensile strength when in contact with wound exudate, allowing for intact removal
- Minimises the risk of maceration and leakage
Has been proven to absorb and retain fluid even under
