Medline Silvasorb Silver Antimicrobial Wound Gel is ideal for lightly draining wounds in need of an antimicrobial barrier. It harnesses the power of ionic silver by releasing it at a controlled level for broad-spectrum antimicrobial action. This self-activating wound gel does not cause any harm to tissue cells. SilvaSorb Gel provides a three-day antimicrobial barrier, plus the moisture donating benefits of the hydrogel.

What to buy SilvaSorb Silver Antimicrobial Gel?

Why choose Medline SilvaSorb Wound Gel?

MicroLattice - Controls The Release of Silver:
SilvaSorb is composed of a synthetic, polyacrylate hydrophilic matrix that contributes to its flexibility, elasticity, and absorbency. The unique architecture of SilvaSorb begins with its MicroLattice matrix — the basic structure that allows moisture to be absorbed and the ionic silver to be released.

Its unique stabilized silver is suspended as minute particles throughout the molecular scaffolding of MicroLattice for even distribution of ionic silver.

Exposure to wound moisture dissolves the silver reservoir and stimulates the release of silver ions into the wound. The amount of silver released is controlled by a mechanism which not only regulates the release of silver, but also prevents staining and discoloration by protecting the silver ions from light energy. As more fluid is absorbed over time, more silver ions are released, creating a controlled-release antimicrobial effect.

In many ways, MicroLattice acts like the skin:
  • It is biocompatible
  • It provides a barrier against infection
  • It offers moisture management
  • It is comfortable

Silvasorb MicroLattice

Ionic silver is suspended in the MicroLattice of Medline SilvaSorb until moisture from the wound triggers its release.

SilvaSorb Gel - First Antimicrobial Silver Hydrogel:
  • SilvaSorb Gel combines the ability of the hydrogel to maintain a moist wound healing environment with the benefits of bioburden control. Its unique architecture features MicroLattice particles that suspend ionic silver within its molecular “scaffolding,” continuously releasing silver for up to three days.

  • The controlled release of antimicrobial silver ions commences upon the exposure of gel to the wound. MicroLattice release technology is so sensitive that even contact with a dry wound bed or intact skin enables the release. The amount of silver released is controlled by a suppression mechanism that not only regulates the release of silver but also prevents skin staining and discoloration.

  • SilvaSorb is completely biocompatible. It is non-irritating, non-sensitizing and will not harm new granulation tissue. The inherent versatility of amorphous hydrogels makes SilvaSorb ideal for even difficult to dress wounds like cavity wounds and burns.

Fast-Acting, Long Lasting Antimicrobial:

Silvasorb Silver Antimicrobial Wound Gel

  • SilvaSorb harnesses the power of ionic silver, releasing silver at a controlled level for broad spectrum antimicrobial action, without harming tissue cells. This Anti-microbial Dressing offers protection over a broad-spectrum of bacteria and fungi, including MRSA and VRE.
  • SilvaSorb kills the microbes that are absorbed into the dressing through wound exudate, but is completely biocompatible with the healing tissue cells.

Controls Bioburden Without Harming Healthy Tissue:
  • Silver ions have long been recognized for their broad-spectrum antimicrobial action. Overwhelming evidence has shown that concentrations well below a part per million are effective against the microorganisms commonly encountered in the clinical setting. However, too much silver can be harmful to the tissue cells in an open wound bed.

  • SilvaSorb uses a combination of MicroLattice polymer and stabilized silver technologies to produce a controlled-release silver, antimicrobial wound dressing with moisture management. SilvaSorb maintains a level of ionic silver that is sufficient to control microorganisms without harming healthy tissue cells. This precision release mechanism is active against a broad spectrum of microbes including MRSA, VRE, E.coli and Pseudomonas, as well as fungi and yeasts.

How to store or throw out SilvaSorb?

  1. Store at room temperature. Do not freeze.
  2. Protect from heat and light.
  3. Keep all drugs in a safe place. Keep all drugs out of the reach of children and pets
  4. Throw away unused or expired drugs. Do not flush down a toilet or pour down a drain unless told to do so. Check with the pharmacist if any questions about the best way to throw out drugs. There may be drug take-back programs in area.

Medline SilvaSorb Case Study

Pressure Ulcer Case Study
Pressure Ulcer Case Study A 93-year-old wheelchair-bound male with no significant nutritional deficits developed a chronic trochanteric pressure ulcer. The ulcer was treated with various wound care therapies for four months without progress. The wound bed was friable and therefore presumptive for high bioburden. It was elected to start an antimicrobial dressing in conjunction with off-loading the affected hip. The closure was attained within four weeks.
