Product description

Biatain Alginate can be used on all moderate to heavily exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites and traumatic wounds. Biatain Alginate should not be used on dry wounds or to control heavy bleeding.

Biatain Alginate is a highly absorbent alginate dressing for moderately to heavily exuding wounds of any size, shape and depth. Biatain Alginate has superior absorption compared to other alginate and hydrofiber dressings.

Minimal risk of leakage and maceration
The superior absorption of Biatain Alginate locks the exudate inside the dressing, preventing leakage that can damage the surrounding skin.

Mode of action
On contact with wound exudate Biatain Alginate converts to a soft, cohesive gel that provides an optimal moist wound healing environment.

Product composition
Biatain Alginate is an alginate dressing consisting of 85% calcium alginate and 15% carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).

  • Contrary to hydrofiber dressings alginate dressings have haemostatic effect, i.e. ability to arrest blood flow in minor bleedings due to the release of calcium ions from the dressing.
  • Biatain Alginate is ideal for cavity filling.
  • The design and the structural integrity of the dressing allow you to cut the dressing and make it fit to any size, shape or depth of a wound.
  • The dressing will conform to the wound bed which is important for the wound healing process.
