Designed to fight biofilm
Biofilms are aggregates of bacteria that are highly tolerant to treatment and the body’s natural defences. It is widely accepted that chronic wounds contain biofilms, and that these somehow delay or prevent wound healing
In vivo data shows that Exufiber Ag+ is significantly better at reducing bacterial biofilm, on Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus [MRSA], compared to Aquacel® Ag+ Extra™

Exufiber Ag+® with Mepilex® Border Flex
Mepilex Border Flex combines innovative Flex Technology with our proven Safetac® Technology to create a secondary dressing that stays on and is uniquely conformable. Using Exufiber Ag+ and Mepilex Border Flex together delivers the benefits of both dressings and promotes an undisturbed healing environment for the wound.
smarter economicsCost-effective wound care
Chronic wounds take time to heal. Infection adds to the challenge. The presence of biofilm can delay healing by keeping the wound in an inflammatory state, and making the bacteria tolerant to treatment. Management of leakage, residue and maceration plus the challenge of high bioburden requires nurse time and resources. The superior* exudate management and antibiofilm action** of Exufiber® Ag+ combine to deliver a dressing that potentially can support undisturbed healing as well as influencing costs.
