Mepiseal

Secures any wound by forming a seal that prevents exudate from spreading

Achieving and maintaining a seal is essential for any negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) treatment. Mepiseal® is designed to secure any wound by forming a seal that prevents exudate from spreading. This self-curing wound sealant uses Safetac®, which means less pain for the patient1 at wound dressing changes.

Perfect wherever additional fixation and sealing properties are needed

Flexible use with Avance® or any other NPWT system

Easy to use

The Mepiseal single-use applicator is simple, fast and easy to use. Once Mepiseal is activated, it will remain fluid and ready to use for five minutes before curing.

  1. Dry skin
    Ensure the skin is thoroughly dry before applying Mepiseal.
  2. Place the wound-filler
    Place the foam or gauze dressing in the wound. If using a drain, follow the Avance instructions for use.
  3. Activate Mepiseal
    Twist the green cap anti-clockwise.
  4. Position Mepiseal
    Press the plunger to apply Mepiseal. Allow a minimum 5mm of space from the wound margin. Apply approx. 1cm wide and 2-5mm thick. You can also spread Mepiseal using the tip of the applicator.
  5. Apply the film dressing
    Apply the film dressing immediately on top of the wound dressing and Mepiseal onto the surrounding skin.
  6. Apply the NPWT
    Apply the negative pressure according to the instructions for using Avance.
