(Collagen Matrix Dressing with Silver)
ColActive® Plus Ag Collagen Matrix Dressing with Silver is an advanced wound care dressing made of collagen, sodium alginate, carboxylmethylcellulose (CMC), ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and silver chloride. The topically applied wound dressing will transform into a soft gel sheet when in contact with wound exudates. The dressing maintains a moist wound environment at the wound surface that aids in the formation of granulation tissue and epithelialization. The EDTA in the dressing removes zinc to inhibit the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), thus creating a suitable environment for wound healing. The silver chloride in the dressing provides effective broad spectrum antimicrobial activity. The dressings may be trimmed and layered for the management of deep wounds.
