Advance healing with AQUACEL® Ag+ Dressings - You have the power to disrupt and destroy biofilm.
Scientifically developed to win the battle against biofilm
In the battle to heal chronic wounds, there is an invisible enemy: biofilm. It's a primary cause of chronic infection1, blocking the effective action of antibiotic and antiseptic agents.2 And its present in at least 78% of chronic wounds.3
But thanks to our breakthrough MORE THAN SILVER™ technology - which contains ionic silver together with a surfactant and a metal chelating agent - our dressing delivers superior4,5 anti-biofilm performance compared to other silver dressings.
