Aquacel Extra

Soft, sterile, non-woven pad or ribbon dressing composed of Hydrofiber (sodium carboxymethyl­cellulose). Absorbs wound fluid and transforms into a soft gel. Provides nine times stronger tensile strength and greater absorption compared with Aquacel.

Aquacel Foam

Adhesive and non-adhesive sterile Hydrofiber foam dressings consisting of a waterproof outer polyurethane film and a multi-layered absorbent pad. The adhesive version has a silicone adhesive border. The multilayer absorbent pad contains a layer of polyurethane foam and a non-woven layer of Hydrofiber (sodium carboxymethylcellulose).

Aquacel Foam Pro

Sterile sodium carboxymethylcellulose and foam wound dressing consisting of a waterproof outer polyurethane film and layers of polyurethane foam, Hydrofiber (sodium carboxymethylcellulose) and perforated silicone adhesive

Aquacel Ribbon

Soft, sterile, non-woven, Hydrofiber (sodium carboxymethylcellulose) ribbon dressing with stitch-bonded fibres to increase tensile strength. Absorbs wound fluid and transforms into a soft gel.

Aquacel Surgical Cover Dressing

Conformable cover dressing formed of a soft, sterile, non-woven pad of sodium carboxymethylcellulose with a waterproof polyurethane film backing and hydrocolloid adhesive


Sterile aseptic dressing pack. Contains: 5 × non-woven swabs, 1 × pair nitrile gloves, 1 × disposal bag, 1 × sterile field, 1 × paper hand towel, 1 × clear tray. Latex-free.

Askina Calgitrol Ag

Askina Calgitrol matrix formulation combines calcium alginate and silver alginate with 10% of bounded water. In contact with exudate, alginate matrix forms a soft gel, which enables the continuous release of silver ions from the entire dressing surface. The concentration of silver ions in the wound is maintained for 7 days at the level of 60ppm.

Askina Calgitrol Paste

Conformable paste composed of the same ionic silver alginate matrix as used in the Askina Calgitrol Ag flat dressing

Askina Calgitrol Thin

Consists of a thin layer of silver alginate matrix. This forms a soft gel when in contact with exudate, allowing the immediate controlled and sustained release of silver ions into the wound.

Askina Carbosorb

Sterile dressing containing activated charcoal. Can be cut to size.
