Suprasorb A creates a clean wound environment for heavily exuding wounds. The high absorbency of calcium alginate, which is made from natural brown algae, is responsible for these properties. Suprasorb A is soft and can be packed into wounds very easily. It adapts to every type of wound bed.
Suprasorb A is appreciated for its ability to absorb high volumes of exudate and its rapid gel formation: A gel is formed through the exchange of calcium ions from the wound dressing with the sodium ions in the wound exudate. The gel binds to the exudate, trapping bacteria and tissue debris. When the dressing is changed, the exudate, bacteria and tissue debris are removed with the alginate fibres.
