Medstock | Alginate


Medstock Alginate Dressing is a naturally derived, non-woven dressing made of 100% calcium alginate fibres that effectively absorbs exudate and provides a moist healing environment.

    • Medstock Alginate dressing consists of an innovative blend of Mannuronic and Guluronic acid fibres with high dry and wet tensile strength which helps to:
      • Absorb moderate to high levels of exudate
      • Form a moist gel over wound bed for optimal wound healing
      • Alleviate pain to wound by hydrating and protecting nerve endings
      • Reduces infection risk by trapping bacteria between fibres
      • Conform to wound contours
      • Reduce foreign body retainment
    • Suitable for wounds with moderate to high exudate
    • Ulcers, sinuses and open cavities, and surgical wounds where exudate exists
    • Superficial to partial thickness burns
    • Skin donor sites
    • Superficial to partial thickness burns
    • Lightly exuding wounds may cause the dressing to adhere. If the dressing is not easily removed, use saline to moisten, then remove
    • Do not use if known allergy to calcium alginate
    • If clinical signs of infection exist, consult a physician
