Other

Peel-Easy

Peel-Easy

No-sting, non-cold, silicone-based medical adhesive remover wipes and sterile spray.

Woulgan

Woulgan

A wound gel containing soluble beta-glucan (SBG). The gel helps to rehydrate necrotic tissue, prevent desiccation and absorb slough. SBG activates macrophages, which release signal molecules that orchestrate the different phases of the healing process.

Hollister Adapt

Hollister Adapt

Silicone-based, alcohol-free, no-sting adhesiver remover spray.

Suprasorb X+PHMB

Suprasorb X+PHMB

Bio-cellulose dressing impregnated with PHMB. Provides a moist environment and cooling effect which may be perceived as soothing. Can be cut or folded to the wound shape/size.

Suprasorb X

Suprasorb X

Bio-cellulose dressing that provides a moist environment and cooling effect which may be perceived as soothing. Can be cut or folded to the shape/size of the wound.

Suprasorb C

Suprasorb C

Collagen wound dressing that gels on contact with exudate. Supports proliferation and the migration of epidermal cells which assists wound healing.

Helisorb Particles

Helisorb Particles

An intact type 1 collagen from a piscean source. Available in a sterile, freeze-dried, particle form. Fully biodegradable, biocompatible and anti-allergenic. Helps move wounds from the inflammatory to the remodelling phase.

Helisorb Sheet

Helisorb Sheet

An intact type 1 collagen from a piscean source. Sterile and freeze dried. It has a fine non-stick nylon mesh on one side, which can be removed before application. Has haemostatic properties and is biodegradable, biocompatible and anti-allergenic.

Kolspon Sponge

Kolspon Sponge

An intact type 1 collagen sponge from a piscean source. Sterile and freeze dried. Has an open pore structure that allows for gaseous exchange. Fully biodegradable, biocompatible and anti-allergenic.

Neuskin-F

Neuskin-F

An intact type 1 collagen from a piscean source. Available as a sterile sheet membrane. Has haemostatic properties and is fully biodegradable, biocompatible and anti-allergenic. Can be used in any orientation.

EpiFix

EpiFix

A minimially manipulated, dehyrdated, non-viable, human cellular amniotic/chorion membrane (dHACM) allograft derived from the placenta. It contains multiple extracellular matrix proteins, growth factors, cytokines and other specialty proteins present in amniotic tissue to provide a barrier membrane that enhances healing. 

Salts Adhesive Remover Spray

Salts Adhesive Remover Spray

No-sting silicone-based medical adhesive remover spray with a natural peppermint fragrance that helps to mask odour.

Biobrane

Biobrane

Composite dressing containing a silicone membrane with a knitted nylon fabric partially embedded in it. A purified porcine collagen is bound to the fabric. Blood and sera clot in the fabric, adhering the dressing to the wound surface until epithelialisation can occur. Also available in glove form for use on burns of the hand.

Cutinova Hydro

Cutinova Hydro

Hydro-selective, semi-transparent, self-adherent dressing comprising a polyurethane gel matrix with absorbent particles and a polyurethane film top layer.

UrgoClean Ag

UrgoClean Ag

A sterile, absorbent dressing made of polyabsorbent fibres and the TLC Healing Matrix with silver. The TLC healing matrix provide pain-free care and dressing removal. The polyabsorbent fibres in the dressing pad cleanse the wound from slough, exudate and bacteria. The dressing is designed to disrupt and breakdown biofilm, and prevent its reformation.

UrgoClean

UrgoClean

A sterile, non-adherent, slough-trapping, poly-absorbent fibre dressing with the TLC healing matrix to promote wound healing and enable pain-free dressing changes. The slough trapping fibres (poly-absorbent) bind and trap the slough within the dressing, providing safe and effective desloughing. UrgoClean is available in a pad and a rope format.

UrgoStart Plus Border

UrgoStart Plus Border

A polyabsorbent fibre pad containing a protease inhibitor (TLC-NOSF Healing Matrix), polyabsorbent fibres, a superabsorbent layer and a silicone border with waterproof backing. The TLC-NOSF Healing Matrix inhibits excess metalloproteinases and promotes angiogenesis. The polyabsorbent fibres bind, trap and retain exudate, slough and debris. NICE 2019 medical technology guidance (MTG42) states that evidence supports the case for adopting UrgoStart dressings to treat diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers.
