Acticoat™ 7 Antimicrobial Barrier Dressing

Be the first to review this product

A dressing utilizing advanced silver technology to help create an optimal wound environment.


  • Rayon/polyester core helps manage moisture level and control silver release.
  • Silver-coated high-density polyethylene mesh facilitates the passage of silver through the dressing.
  • The nanocrystalline coating of pure silver delivers antimicrobial barrier activity within 30 minutes - faster than other forms of silver.
  • NUCRYST Pharmaceutical's antimicrobial technology is able to produce silver-coated polyethylene films that can release an effective concentration of silver over several days.
  • Thus, as silver ions are consumed, additional silver is released from the dressing to provide an effective antimicrobial barrier.
  • This patented silver-based antimicrobial technology can be applied to a wide range of medical devices including wound dressings, certain types of catheters and various implants to prevent infection.
  • This technology was first applied to burn wound dressings because burns present a very severe risk of infection.

  • Benefits

  • Delivers fast-acting, long-lasting antimicrobial barrier control.
  • Effective barrier which may assist in preventing contamination of the wound.
  • Laboratory studies show that the ACTICOAT™ 7 dressing kills micro-organisms faster than conventional products such as silver sulfadiazine (1 percent cream) or silver nitrate (0.5%) solution.
  • It has also been shown in-vitro to provide protection against more than 150 pathogens.
  • The pathogens tested in the lab include very resistant strains of bacteria such as antibiotic-resistant strains of Pseudomonas, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus and fungi.
  • These pathogens have been known to sweep through a hospital and infect a great many patients with already weakened immune systems. Infections contracted during hospitalization caused by these so-called superbugs and other organisms cost North American taxpayers an estimated $18 billion a year in additional hospital care.
  • ACTICOAT™ 7 is versatile. The dressings can be cut to the desired shape and size to wrap around all body parts.
  • The sustained release of silver also means fewer dressing changes, resulting in less exposure of the wound bed to the environment.
  • This reduces the risk of infection, which lowers hospital costs.
  • ACTICOAT™ 7 is cost-effective because it can be left on wounds for up to 7 days.
