Debridement is essential to reducing biofilm, but it doesn’t get rid of it completely. After seeing improvement in a wound, it’s time to step down to individual and customized healing therapies that may include an antibacterial such as IoPlex Iodopher Foam Dressing.
IoPlex is a hydrophilic absorbent foam dressing complexed with slow-release iodine for biofilm management. It’s been shown to manage biofilm in-vitro5 and reduce bacterial burden within the wound dressing. Its unique controlled-release system allows for regulated and sustained infection management through the slow release of iodine within the wound dressing.
