Product description

Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption

When in contact with exudate, the unique 3D foam structure of Biatain® Ag Adhesive conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption – even under compression (5).

Designed to prevent infection

The sustained silver release profile ensures a homogenous distribution of silver ions providing a continuous antibacterial effect during entire wear time (up to 7 days) (6).

Patented with a silver complex with broad antibacterial profile

Independent studies have proven that Biatain® Ag is effective on bacteria commonly found in infected non-healing wounds (3,4). Clinical studies have shown that infected wounds heal faster with Biatain® Ag than with other wound dressings, including other antibacterial dressings (1,2,7).

Continuous antibacterial effect during entire wear time

Due to the sustained silver release profile, there is a continuous antibacterial effect during the entire wear time (up to 7 days) (6).

Mode of action

In the presence of exudate, silver is continuously released into the wound bed for up to 7 days (6).


Biatain® Ag Adhesive is a soft and flexible absorbent polyurethane foam that is patented with a silver complex homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix.


Biatain® Ag Adhesive can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds with delayed healing due to bacteria, or where there is a risk of infection, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, second-degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Ag Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.
