Maxorb® Extra Ag
The antimicrobial power of silver with a powerful alginate
Sustained antimicrobial protection
Releases silver ions, in the presense of wound fluid, for up to 21 days.
Maxorb Extra Ag absorbs more than other alginate or absorbent silver dressings.
Fluid will not wick laterally
Wound exudate mixes with Maxorb Extra Ag to form a gel that will not wick out, reducing the potential for damage to periwound skin.
Superior gelling and fluid handling
The CMC fiber in Maxorb Extra Ag improves the vertical wicking and fluid handling as well as the wet strength.
Odor in wounds is primarily caused by bacteria, and so by providing an antibacterial barrier to combat bacteria absorbed in the wound exudate, odor is reduced.
