ColActive® Plus and ColActive® Plus Ag have been used on millions of patients. ColActive® Plus and ColActive® Plus Ag distinguish themselves through the use of carboxymethyl cellulose, EDTA and alginate. ColActive® Plus and ColActive® Plus Ag are designed to absorb fluids forming a soft gel sheet that conforms to the wound site, providing a breathable, moist healing environment. The gelled dressing promotes motility of important cellular elements for healing. This results in the formation of granulation tissue and epithelialization.
In the case of ColActive® Plus Ag, the moistened dressing also activates the antimicrobial silver, eliminating colonization of bacteria within the dressing, protecting the wound bed from further risk of infection.
