How MORE THAN SILVER™ disrupts and destroys biofilm

Developing AQUACEL® Ag+ Dressing technology took years of research, across a wide range of biofilm-disrupting agents and surfactants in combination with antimicrobials1. We identified 250,000 potential combinations, and tested 60,000.

The result?

MORE THAN SILVER™ technology, which contains three components with the power to disrupt and destroy biofilm

Here's what makes up MORE THAN SILVER™

UNITED AGAINST BIOFILM
We combine MORE THAN SILVER™ with Hydrofiber® technology, which works to absorb wound exudate and disrupted EPS and bacteria. This helps to manage wound moisture and support healing9.
