Product Education

  • IODOSORB◊ - Breaking down barriers to prepare the wound to progress to closure.

    IODOSORB◊ are a range of Cadexomer dressings with Iodine products, available in three presentations. (Ointment, Paste and Powder)


    IODOSORB removes barriers to healing by its dual action antimicrobial and desloughing properties. The broad spectrum antimicrobial action is provided by the sustained release of iodine and the desloughing action is provided by the unique cadexomer matrix.


    By effectively removing the barriers of bacteria, slough and debris and excess exudate, IODOSORB is effective for the treatment of infection in chronic exuding wounds.

  • ACTICOAT◊ - Fewer signs and symptoms of infection. Faster Progress!

    ACTICOAT◊ is a range of dressings that utilize the antimicrobial properties of silver to provide an efficient and effective barrier to bacterial penetration. Flexible, absorbent and conformable, each ACTICOAT variant is developed with properties specific to its required use. ACTICOAT has a unique, patented construction with nanocrystalline technology.


    With ACTICOAT, the prevention and treatment of infection starts rapidly and continues to work.
