Product description

Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption

When in contact with exudate the unique 3D foam structure of Biatain® Ag Non-Adhesive conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption – even under compression (5).

Designed to prevent infection

The sustained silver release profile ensures a homogenous distribution of silver ions providing a continuous anti-bacterial effect during entire wear time (up to 7 days) (6).

Patented with a silver complex with broad anti-bacteria profile

Independent studies have proven that Biatain® Ag is effective on bacteria commonly found in infected non-healing wounds (3,4). Clinical studies have shown that infected wounds heal faster with Biatain® Ag than with other wounds dressings, including other anti-bacterial dressings (1,2,7).

Continuous anti-bacterial effect during entire wear time

Due to the sustained silver release profile there is a continuous anti-bacterial effect during entire wear time (up to 7 days) (6).

Mode of action

In the presence of exudate silver is continuously released into the wound bed for up to 7 days (6).

Composition

Biatain® Ag Non-Adhesive is a soft and flexible absorbent polyurethane foam that is patented with a silver complex homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix.

Usage

Biatain® Ag Non-Adhesive can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds with delayed healing due to bacteria, or where there is a risk of infection, including leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic foot ulcers, second degree burns, donor sites, post-operative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Ag Non-Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.
