Cutimed® Sorbact® Ribbon Gauze is an innovative wound dressing designed for the effective management of colonised and infected wounds. Its unique mode of action harnesses the power of hydrophobic interaction to irreversibly bind and inactivate pathogenic bacteria and fungi without using any antibiotics or antiseptics.

Indications: Ideal for managing a variety of unclean, colonised, and infected exuding wounds, including but not limited to:

  • Chronic wounds such as venous, arterial, or diabetic ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Wounds after excision of fistulas and abscesses
  • Postoperative dehisced wounds
  • Traumatic wounds

Key Benefits:

  1. No Bacterial Resistance: The treatment doesn’t induce resistance in bacterial strains as it doesn’t use antibiotics or antiseptic substances.
  2. No Risk of Allergies: Safe for both patients and medical staff, reducing the risk of allergic reactions.
  3. No Cytotoxicity: Ensures effective wound pathogen removal without releasing substances that could impair the healing process.
  4. No Promotion of Bacterial Endotoxin Release: Prevents the release of endotoxins from dead cells, supporting natural wound healing.
  5. No Contraindications: Safe for use during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and on children.

The Sorbact® Method: The dressing’s special coating boasts highly hydrophobic properties, interacting with the hydrophobic characteristics of pathogenic bacteria and fungi. This interaction irreversibly binds and deactivates these pathogens, facilitating a conducive environment for the natural wound healing process.
