Biatain® Ag Adhesive / Non Adhesive
Biatain® Ag Adhesive is a soft and conformable silver foam dressing that is proven to help infected wounds heal faster (1,2).
Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption
When in contact with exudate the unique 3D foam structure of Biatain® Ag 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 antibacterial effect during entire wear time (up to 7 days) (6).
Patented with a silver complex with broad antibacterial 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 antibacterial dressings (1,2,7).
Continuous antibacterial effect during entire wear time
Due to the sustained silver release profile there is a continuous antibacterial 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 up to 7 days (6).
Biatain® Ag Adhesive is a soft and flexible absorbent polyurethane foam that is patented with a silver complex homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix.
Biatain® Ag 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 ulcers, second-degree burns, donor sites, post-operative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Ag Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.
