Algicell Ag Calcium Alginate Silver Wound Dressing from provides caregivers with an alternative to the market leading brand that delivers superior performance at a more cost-effective price level. The dressing that compares favorably on ionic silver content level and delivery method, has a preferable gelling profile, and has superior absorption capabilities.

Significantly, because latex-free Algicell Ag is priced in line with reimbursement levels, caregivers can now choose the most appropriate dressing for their patients more often.

Algicell Ag provides 1.4% silver – delivered via a sophisticated ionic transfer technology. The net effect is a controlled and sustained release of antimicrobial silver that provides a durable 7-day effect within the dressing, helping to reduce bioburden and providing an effective barrier to pathogens.

By design, Algicell Ag is meant to compete favorably head-to-head with the market leading dressing, while also providing significant advantages against the other dressings in its category.

Algicell Ag is designed specifically for the task at hand – to absorb a large amount of wound exudates typically seen in wounds with high bioburden, while also gelling for easy pain-free removal from wounds. However, while other gelling dressings tend to lose their physical integrity and fall apart making dressing removal time consuming, Algicell Ag keeps its physical integrity, allowing for easier removal and clean-up during dressing changes.

Algicell Ag Calcium Alginate Silver Wound Dressing Features:
  • Provides superior bactericidal action that goes to work almost immediately, with kill rates at 99.99% and above
  • Provides an effective barrier to bacterial penetration
  • Protects wound dressing against bacterial colonization
  • Algicell Ag, comprised of a proprietary blend of mannuronic (high gelling) and guluronic (high wet-strength) alginic acids, is designed to gel well while keeping its physical integrity for intact removal
  • The dressing's high absorption capacity also helps to reduce the risk of tissue maceration and allows for increased time between dressing changes
  • Unlike other products, Algicell Ag does not leave any silver coated nylon thread residue in the wound upon removal of the dressing
