Pharmagel (Kemagel®) Ag is hydrogel wound dressing sheet that combines antimicrobial effect of silver with fluid management, cooling sensation and moisturizing effect of hydrogel to provide ideal environment for wound healing.
Pharmagel (Kemagel®) Ag is laminated with bacteria proof, virus proof and waterproof polyurethane film outermost layer.
Broad spectrum antimicrobial effect:
Thanks to the antimicrobial power of silver ions. Pharmagel (Kemagel®) Ag shows antimicrobial effect against a wide spectrum of microorganisms including Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli and pseudomonas aeruginosa; Gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA; and VRE; and fungi such as Aspergillus niger and Penicillium nigricans.
Continuous antimicrobial protection:
Pharmagel (Kemagel®) Ag release of silver is highly controlled, these silver particles are found on the surface of the silica and also embedded throughout the structure.
The metallic silver particles act as a reservoir for release of silver ions (Ag+) that are the active agent against bacteria. The presence of both surface and embedded silver particles gives the material a combination of immediate antimicrobial activity combined with long-term durability.
