Biatain Alginate can be used on all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full thickness wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites. Biatain Alginate should not be used on dry or lightly exuding wounds or to control heavy bleeding.
Biatain Alginate is a highly absorbent alginate dressing for moderately to heavily exuding wounds of any size, shape and depth. Superior absorption compared to other alginate and hydrofibre dressings (4)
Ideal for cavity filling
The design and structural integrity of the dressing allow you to cut the dressing to fit to any size, shape or depth of a wound. The dressing will conform to the wound bed which is important for the wound healing process.
Unique dressing integrity
The unique dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal.
Minimal risk of leakage and maceration
The superior absorption of Biatain Alginate Ag and the gel formation which locks exudate inside the gel prevent leakage that can cause maceration of the surrounding skin.
Mode of action
On contact with wound exudate Biatain Alginate converts to a soft, cohesive gel that provides an optimal moist wound healing environment.
Biatain Alginate is an alginate dressing consisting of 85% calcium alginate and 15% carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).
