Biatain Silicone Ag

The benefits of Biatain Silicone Ag with 3DFit Technology

The majority of infected wounds are highly exuding, creating a favourable environment for biofilms

Conventional foam dressings leave a gap between the wound bed and dressing, allowing exudate to pool. This may promote bacterial growth leading to increased risk of infection and subsequent development of biofilms.

Biofilms are clusters of bacteria and fungi embedded in the wound environment, which can form within 24 hours. Biofilms are difficult for the immune system and antibiotics to eradicate1.

New research shows that biofilms can be found both in the wound bed surface and in the tissue below the wound bed2. Its presence can lead to infection, inflammation and delayed healing3.

Biatain Silicone Ag is a conforming dressing with 3DFit Technology that fills the gap and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal healing conditions. Biatain Silicone Ag has been shown to kill 99.99% of mature biofilms (P. aeruginosa) and to prevent biofilm formation (shown in vitro).

Combat infection and biofilms where it matters

Absorbs vertically

Absorbs vertically

The microcapillaries within the foam absorb exudate vertically, triggering the release of Ag

Conforms to the wound bed

Conforms to the wound bed

Biatain Silicone Ag conforms to the wound bed to reduce exudate pooling and deliver Ag at the wound bed.

Retains exudate

Retains exudate

Exudate is locked away and retained even under compression, reducing the risk of maceration and spreading of infection to the wound edges and periwound skin.

Promoting optimal healing conditions for infected wounds

Wound bed preparation

Cleansing and debridement of infected wounds removes slough and non-viable tissue, including some biofilms, prior to the application of a dressing.

A conforming dressing

The dressing should fill the gap between the wound bed and dressing, as well as absorb and retain exudate, thereby creating a less favourable environment for biofilm development.

Infection management

The active component should be effective against biofilms and a broad range of bacteria and fungi to support optimal healing conditions.
