    Opraclean®

    Dressing Materials

    Opraclean® Dressing Materials help cleanse wounds by absorbing wound exudate, cell debris and bacteria. Opraclean® is equally effective in packing deep wound pockets and cavities. The iodoform-saturated dressings also have an antimicrobial effect*. On contact with wound secretions, iodoform breaks down and continuously releases small amounts of iodine from the dressing. Another advantage: There is no known pathogen resistance to iodine.

    *Antimicrobial and antifungal effect confirmed for Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia and Candida albicans, based on in vitro tests
