AQUACEL® Ag+ Extra – Two powerful technologies working synergistically to manage the key barriers to wound healing. Ag+ Technology is a unique, silver-containing anti-biofilm formulation that:
- Disrupts and breaks down biofilm slime to expose bacteria.
- Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria, including antibiotic resistant superbugs, with its reservoir of silver.
- Prevents biofilm reformation. Locks in excess exudate, bacteria and biofilm to help minimise cross infection and prevent maceration.
- Micro-contours to the wound bed, helping to maintain optimal moisture balance and eliminating dead spaces where bacteria and biofilm can grow.
- Responds to wound conditions by forming a cohesive gel, while helping to minimise pain associated with dressing changes.
