Cutimed Sorbact is the first wound dressing that binds microbes irreversibly due to a coating of DACC (dialkylcarbamoylchloride) – a hydrophobic fatty acid. Most bacteria and fungi found within a wound are also hydrophobic. In the moist environment of a wound, bacteria and fungi irreversibly bind to the dressings.
Cutimed Sorbact is effective in all wounds where the primary goal is to reduce bacterial burden, regardless of their aetiology including:
a) chronic wounds e.g. diabetic foot, leg and pressure ulcers
b) post-operative dehisced wounds
c) traumatic wounds
d) after incision or excision of fistulae or abscesses
It can also be used prophylactically.
Cutimed Sorbact is available in a wide variety of sizes as a Dressing Pad, Swab, Round Swab or Ribbon.
