ACTICOAT is a potent antimicrobial barrier dressing. The Nanocrystalline coating of silver rapidly kills a broad spectrum of bacteria in as little as 30 minutes. ACTICOAT consists of three layers: an absorbent inner core sandwiched between outer layers of silver coated, low adherent polyethylene net. Nanocrystalline Silver protects the wound site from bacterial colonization while the inner core helps maintain moist wound environment.

Features & Benefits:
• Nanocrystalline Silver Antimicrobial barrier – ACTICOAT provides an effective barrier to protect the wound site from invasive pathogens

• Broad spectrum antimicrobial activity – (In-vitro data shows) ACTICOAT is an effective barrier to over 150 pathogens which includes a broad spectrum of gram positive and negative bacteria and fungal wound pathogens. ACTICOAT is also an effective barrier to multiple strains of Antibiotic resistant Pseudomonas, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin resistant Enterococcus (VRE).

• Sustained release of silver for 3 days – The sustained release of silver ensures that ACTICOAT remains effective for a up to 3 days.

• Fast acting – In-vitro data shows ACTICOAT rapidly kills bacteria in as little as 30 minutes – faster than other forms of silver.

• Easy-to-Use – Easier and less painful to remove than SSD (silver sulphadiazine) making it a dressing of choice for both the patient and the carer.

• Prevents and reduces infection – ACTICOAT kills pathogenic organisms in wounds to reduce the risk of infection. ACTICOAT is also effective in the reduction of bacterial load in wounds.

• Assists faster healing – ACTICOAT contributes to effective wound bed preparation which in turn assists faster healing

• Low adherent – Dressing changes are less traumatic than traditional methods for both the patient and the carer.
