AQUACEL® Ag dressings Made Easy

AQUACEL® Ag dressings incorporate Hydrofiber® Technology with 1.2% (w/w) silver (ie 12mg of silver per gram of dressing). The combination of Hydrofiber® Technology with ionic silver (Ag+) produces a dressing that is highly absorbent, has favourable gelling characteristics  and broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity (as demonstrated by in vitro testing)1-3. These qualities mean that AQUACEL® Ag dressings can assist in overcoming major challenges to wound healing.
