  • FSA Approved

Hydrofera Blue Classic Antibacterial Foam Dressing provides a protective antibacterial cover that inhibits the growth of microorganisms. It is made by binding two organic pigments methylene blue and gentian violet in open-celled polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) that work to help bind bacteria and harmful endotoxins to the dressings. The micro pore structure of PVA foam rapidly wicks excess moisture away from wound. Successful wound management requires management of bioburden, maintaining moisture balance and removal of devitalized tissue. Hydrofera Blue Classic dressings can help all of these in a single dressing

When to Use Hydrofera blue antibacterial Dressing?


Hydrofera Blue Wound Care Benefits

Management of bioburden, removal of devitalized tissue and maintaining moisture balance is important for successful wound management. Hydrofera Blue Antibacterial dressings provide all these in a single dressing.

  • Bioburden Management: Two well-known organic pigments, gentian violet and methylene blue offer broad-spectrum antibacterial protection.
  • Autolytic Debridement: Use of Hydrofera dressings promotes autolytic debridement.
  • Moisture Management: PVA micro-pore foam structure absorbs and retains fluid. It becomes soft and flexible when moistened and maintains absorbency similar to other highly absorptive dressings.
  • Edge Effect: This dressing assists in the resolution of epibole or flattening of wound edges.
