Description & Features

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 wound 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 the entire wear time (up to 7 days) (6).

Mode of action

In the presence of exudate, silver is continuously released into the wound bed for up to 7 days (6).

Composition

Biatain® Ag Adhesive is a soft and flexible absorbent polyurethane foam that is patented with a silver complex homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix.

Usage

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, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Ag Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.

Usage

Biatain® Silicone Ag can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds with delayed healing due to bacteria, or where there is a risk for infection, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, second-degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Can be used with compression therapy.

Biatain® Silicone Ag is a soft and conformable foam dressing with a patented silver complex and a soft silicone adhesive border. Can be used on infected wounds or wounds with a risk of infection.

Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption

The unique foam structure conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption and retention of exudate. Conformability to wound bed minimizes the risk of bacteria growth in “dead space” and creates the optimal condition for delivery of silver ions.

Superior exudate management

The fluid handling properties of Biatain® Silicone Ag ensures that the exudate is effectively locked away in the foam, still leaving the wound moist for optimal healing conditions, even under compression.

Patented silver complex with broad antimicrobial profile

Optimal concentration of silver ensures faster elimination of bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and ß-haemolytic Streptococcus. The patented silver complexprovides a sustained release of silver during the entire wear time (up to 7 days)

Non-touch opening

Biatain® Silicone Ag has a 3-piece non-touch opening for aseptic, safe and easy application, reducing dressing waste.

Mode of action

In the presence of exudate, silver is continuously released into the wound bed for up to 7 days.

Product composition

Biatain® Silicone Ag is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing that contains a patented ionic silver complex. The dressing has a semi-permeable, water and bacteria-proof top film and a soft silicone adhesive border.
