Suprasorb® A + Ag

Antimicrobial Calcium Alginate Dressing with Silver

Suprasorb® A + Ag reduces the microbial load directly in the wound bed and is therefore especially suitable for wounds that are infected or at risk of infection - including MRSA or VRE*. In addition to having these properties, Suprasorb® A + Ag is also a soft and supple wound covering that readily conforms to any wound bed.

The high exudate absorption capacity of Suprasorb® A + Ag comes to the fore particularly with wounds with high levels of exudate. Suprasorb® A + Ag forms a gel on contact with exudate. Bacteria and microbes are trapped in this gel, creating a moist wound environment and cleansing the wound. The high exudate absorption capacity generally promotes wound healing.
