Coloplast’s Biatain Silicone foam receives positive clinical rating by NHS Clinical Evaluation Team

Coloplast’s Biatain Silicone foam receives positive clinical rating by NHS Clinical Evaluation Team

The UK National Health Service (NHS) Clinical Evaluation Team (CET) have published a report evaluating foam dressings of Wound Care suppliers on packaging, opening, clinical use and disposal, and while Coloplast’s Biatain® Silicone has been rated highly in all categories it has been rated highest in absorbency and total fluid capacity management.

Coloplast offers a range of Biatain® Silicone foam dressings, and Biatain Silicone was evaluated and rated positively within the silicone adhesive foam category.

“One of our key missions is to develop products with a strong clinical relevance,” said Senior Vice President Nicolai Buhl Andersen, Coloplast Wound & Skin Care. “We are very happy to see such a strong and positive rating by a highly respected institution as the NHS. This strong rating of our Biatain® Silicone foam from a clinical perspective is a clear testament to the clinical value and uniqueness of our 3DFit Technology.”

No. 1 in Absorbency and Fluid Capacity Management

In their respective categories Biatain® Silicone was rated number one for ‘Absorbency’ and ‘Total Fluid Capacity Management’, Biatain® Silicone Lite was rated as number one for ‘Moisture Vapour Transfer Rate’ and ‘Fluid Capacity Management’ and Biatain® Non-Adhesive was rated as number one for ‘Moisture Vapour Transfer Rate’ and ‘Total Fluid Capacity Management’.

Geraldine Harkins, UK Group Sales Director, Coloplast Wound Care, commented: “Absorption and total fluid handling are crucial parameters in the performance of a modern foam wound dressing. The dressing must be able to remove excess exudate from the wound while maintaining a moist wound bed and protecting the peri wound skin to achieve optimal wound healing.

“The CET evaluation has independently demonstrated that the Biatain® range of dressings offers clinicians the confidence that Biatain Foams will deliver the best total fluid capacity management on the foam market. Biatain foam dressings also have 3D Fit Technology which means that the foam conforms to the wound bed and reduces the need for fillers regularly used under foam dressing products. This provides an additional clinical benefit above what the CET have assessed.”

The evaluation process is based on extensive engagement with clinical NHS staff including doctors, nurses and midwives.
