AQUACEL® Ag Advantage

AQUACEL® Ag Advantage dressings are antimicrobial primary dressings for use in acute and hard-to-heal wounds that are infected or at risk of infection with varying exudate levels. AQUACEL® Ag Advantage incorporates two powerful technologies – Hydrofiber™ and MORE THAN SILVER™ - that work together synergistically to effectively manage biofilm within the dressing.

AQUACEL® Ag Advantage dressings feature two powerful technologies working synergistically to manage the key local barriers to wound healing - exudate, infection and bioburden.

Hydrofiber® Technology helps wound healing:
• Absorbs wound ‡fluid and creates a soft gel, maintaining a moist wound environment and helps reduce pain associated with dressing changes.*1-3
• Locks in exudate and bacteria to help minimize the harmful effects of maceration and cross infection.*4-9
• Micro-contours to the wound bed, eliminating dead space where bacteria can grow.*10-12

NEW ADVANTAGE TECHNOLOGY is more than just silver - a unique formulation that enhances the antimicrobial efficacy of ionic silver within the dressing:
• Faster reduction of bacteria within the dressing compared to AQUACEL® Ag Extra, and ACTICOAT.™*13-15
• Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria within the dressing including antibiotic resistant microorganisms.*13, 16-18
• Sustained antimicrobial activity in dressing up to 7 days and prevents microbial reformation.*13,16,17
