256055 x10


Melgisorb Ag is an antimicrobial alginate dressing that can absorb large amounts of exudate due to it's carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) fibres. It also contains ionic silver which reduces bioburden in the wound by inactivating wound relevant pathogens within 4 hours with a sustained effect for up to 14 days. The alginate fibres become gel-like providing a moist environment conducive to wound healing. As the product contains alginate, it may assist in supporting the control of minor bleeding in superficial wound

Antimicrobial Action
The Melgisorb Ag is impregnated with silver sulphate ions which are activated when coming in contact with exudate. The silver sulphate ions bind to the cell wall proteins causing them to rupture. The silver sulphate ions may also bind to bacterial enzymes and cell DNA, inhibiting them to function normally. The ions will divide throughout the wound fluid until it reaches equilibrium, thus sustaining it's antimicrobial effect in the wound dressing and in the wound.
