Biatain Alginate can be used on all moderate to heavily exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites and traumatic wounds. Biatain Alginate should not be used on dry wounds or to control heavy bleeding.
Biatain Alginate is a highly absorbent alginate dressing for moderately to heavily exuding wounds of any size, shape and depth. Superior absorption compared to other alginate and hydrofibre dressings (4)
Minimal risk of leakage and maceration
The superior absorption of Biatain Alginate locks the exudate inside the dressing, preventing leakage that can damage the surrounding skin.
Mode of action
On contact with wound exudate Biatain Alginate converts to a soft, cohesive gel that provides an optimal moist wound healing environment.
Biatain Alginate is an alginate dressing consisting of 85% calcium alginate and 15% carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).
