Bacteria trapping in action

Absorb, channel, and trap exudate containing bacteria – even under pressure

Imagine having an all-in-one dressing that manages exudate containing bacteria and traps it in a more effective way.  With its unique combination of Flex Technology and increased superabsorbent fibres, Mepilex® Border Flex quickly absorbs and channels the exudate and its bacteria through the contact, foam and spreading layers. The retention layer traps and prevents it from re-entering the wound bed – even under pressure  .

Mepilex Border Flex and Sorbact® Foam Gentle Border were tested in vitro to compare their ability to retain exudate containing bacteria under compression for 1 hour. The results indicate that Mepilex Border Flex traps it more effectively than Sorbact® Foam Gentle Border  .
