Sorbact® Superabsorbent

Bacteria- and fungi binding, superabsorbent wound dressing

Reduces bioburden in highly to excessively exuding wounds

Sorbact® Superabsorbent is a bacteria- and fungi binding wound dressing, based on Sorbact® Technology, for highly to excessively exuding wounds. Sorbact® Superabsorbent absorbs and retains a large amount of exudate, thereby reducing the risk of maceration. The dressing may also prevent strikethroughs and leakage. The dressing can be used in compression therapy.
