Crawford KerraContact AG 3+ Silver Dressing With Oxysalt Technology

  • FSA Approved

Crawford KerraContact AG 3+ Silver Dressing With Oxysalt Technology is a dressing for chronic and acute wounds that utilizes Ag Oxysalts Technology. Ag Oxysalts is a unique type of silver that delivers a quick 5 log bacteria kill rate while at the same time being gentle on patients skin. Silver oxysalts offer higher oxidation states of silver (Ag2+, Ag3+) capable of interacting with microbial DNA, proteins and lipids, as well as provide potent oxidizing action through the increased power of Ag2+,3+ for advanced biocidal activity.

Highlights of KerraContact AG 3+ Silver Dressing

  • Silver in the +1,+2 and +3 valence states (highest oxidation state of silver available)
  • More active silver is available to interact with harmful microbes in a lower quantity
  • Broad spectrum antimicrobial action: Gram +/-, yeast and fungi
  • Excellent biocompatibility
  • Excellent antimicrobial activity with less total silver in dressing

Power of Ag Oxysalts Technology



  • Silver is only effective at killing bacteria when it loses electrons in exudate. The more electrons that are lost, the more positively charged the silver becomes. This leads to a greater ability of silver to disrupt the normal function of the bacteria
  • Exsalt dressings with Ag Oxysalts Technology are designed to lose 3 electrons in exudate (Ag3+) to make it more effective at killing bacteria. Other silver dressings only lose one electron (Ag1+) making their silver less effective
