An essential factor in wound healing is the management of microbial flora; in the form of infection treatment and prevention.
Cutimed® Sorbact® utilises the safe and effective Sorbact® technology that binds bacteria with a purely physical mode of action. Sorbact® Technology removes bacteria without releasing possibly harmful endotoxins.
Sorbact® engineered dressings actively remove bacteria and bind them to the surface of the dressing, to reduce bioburden on the wound and promote healing.
The dynamic nature of Sorbact Technology allows these dressings to provide a range of functions.
Sorbact® safely removes bacteria with no antimicrobial resistance
The hydrophobic properties of Sorbact® dressings cause bacteria and endotoxins to bind to the dressing's surface, keeping the wound clean.
Once bacteria binds to the dressing, its growth becomes inhibited, thus preventing endotoxins from being released into the wound.
Removal of Sorbact® dressings, also removes bacteria from the site of the wound to reduce bioburden and promote natural healing.
Sorbact® products are indicated for post-operative and traumatic wounds with low to moderate exudate levels.

Do Sorbact products contain silver?
No. Cutimed Sorbact employs a surprisingly simple physical principle to effectively bind and inactivate pathogenic bacteria and fungi
Is Cutimed Sorbact compatible with secondary dressing and compression bandaging?
Cutimed Sorbact is compatible with all combinations of compression garments and secondary dressings, however the product must be in direct contact with the wound surface (always green mesh to the wound), with no ither interfering substances (ie. creams and ointments)
