IODOSORB ™Gel is a sterile formulation of Cadexomer Iodine. When applied to the wound, IODOSORB ™ cleans it by absorbing fluids, removing exudate, slough and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As the gel absorbs exudate, iodine is released, killing bacteria and changing color as the iodine is used up.Exudate and debris is removed effectively.
IODOSORB ™ helps to promote a clean wound healing environment.
A change in color (white) indicates when IODOSORB ™ should be changed.
Gel formed over the wound promotes moist healing.
Accelerated healing rates can lead to earlier patient discharges.
A 3-in-1 mode of action kills bacteria, manages exudate, and debrides the wound bed.
