  • How PHMB Works?
    AMD Antimicrobial dressings contain PHMB (polyhexamethylene biguanide), a bacteria-killing polymer. PHMB attacks bacteria on and within the dressing fabric, helping keep infection out of the wound and limiting cross-contamination. Here is how PHMB works:
    - PHMB binds to phospholipid (outer) membrane of bacteria
    - Disrupts membrane, causing cytoplasm to leak out
    - Protective layer of cell disintegrates
    - Cell collapses and dies
