Medline Opticell AG Plus Silver Antibacterial Gelling Fiber Wound Dressing uses a unique gelling Chytoform technology that allows the absorbent fibers of the dressing to transform into a clear and conformable gel. The unique gelling action helps manage drainage and remove dead, damaged and infected tissue from the wound, trapping it for later removal at the dressing change.

Why choose Medline Opticell Ag Plus?

  • Chytoform gelling fiber technology
  • Highly conformable
  • Versatile

Medline Silver Gelling Wound Dressing Features

  • Delivers broad spectrum antimicrobial efficacy
  • Versatile - can be used with all drainage levels
  • Three times the wet strength of Aquacel traditional gelling fiber
  • No lateral wicking - limits maceration
  • Maintains a moist wound healing environment
  • Surface area memory(SAM) - retains its size
  • Gentle removal from the wound
  • Contains 0.75% ionic silver by weight
  • When the dressing encounters a wound environment, silver ions are activated to manage bioburden
  • Silver inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi, yet is completely harmless to skin cells
  • Opticell AG Plus Silver Dressing is designed to minimize pain during removal
  • Chytoform technology wicks fluid only vertically, not laterally, helping to reduce the risk of periwound maceration because wound fluid will not migrate across the dressing to reach the vulnerable skin
  • Opticell Ag+ has a conformable and thin profile that provides optimal contact with the wound and conforms to the wound surface
  • Designed specifically for moderate to heavily draining wounds
  • Can also be pre-moistened for effective use on dry or lightly draining wounds
  • Used to help control minor bleeding from on-field injuries
  • First chronic wound care dressing that uses Chitosan, an advanced biological material
  • Gelling action, combined with its unique chemistry, strength and absorbency, allows Opticell to deliver outstanding benefits
  • Natural, autolytic debridement is gentle on the wound and promotes an optimal moist wound healing environment
  • Sterile and latex free

Medline Opticell AG Plus Silver Wound Dressing Benefits

  • Reduces dressing change frequency:
    • Opticells proprietary Chytoform technology delivers exceptional absorbency, which can help reduce dressing change frequency
    • Consequently, patients are subjected to fewer dressing changes, wound bed disruption is minimized and treatment costs may be reduced
  • Creates an optimal healing environment:
    • Manages moisture to help promote autolytic debridement
    • Optimizes wound contact with a highly conformable low profile
    • Maintains wound coverage with Surface Area Memory (SAM)
  • Gentle patient care:
    • Prevents maceration by wicking fluid only vertically, not laterally
    • Reduces dressing change frequency with exceptional absorbency
    • Separates gently from the wound in one piece using advanced Cytoform technology
  • Helps to Prevent Maceration:
    Opticells Chytoform technology wicks fluid only vertically, not laterally. This reduces the risk of periwound maceration because wound fluid is not able to migrate across the dressing to reach this vulnerable skin
  • Promotes gentle, pain-free removal:
    With its superb strength and unique gelling properties, application and one-piece removal is gentle on wounds and virtually pain-free for patients
  • Conforming to the Wound:
    Opticells conformable and thin profile provides optimal contact with the wound. Other dressings with reinforced fibers, on the other hand, may exhibit a ridging effect that can limit wound contact
