Proven in scientifically controlled wounds

95% greater reduction of biofilm vs. a PHMB gauze39

In an adapted DFA-recognized in vivo biofilm model19, Ag+ Technology in combination with Hydrofiber® Technology demonstrated:*

• 95% greater reduction by day 6 (p<0.05)39††

A significantly greater rate of epithelialization and granulation vs. PHMB gauze39.

• 48% more granulation tissue by day 6 (p<0.05)

• 24% more epithelial tissue by day 6 (p<0.05)
