What to buy with Opticell Ag+

What is Chytoform Technology?

Opticell with Chytoform technology is the next generation of chronic wound care dressings. Chytoform gelling fiber is primarily composed of chitosan, a well-known biological material derived from crustacean shells. Medline Opticell dressings are the first application of this advanced biological material for use in chronic wound care. When this dressing comes into contact with moisture, it transforms into a strong, absorbent and conformable gel that controls minor bleeding common in newly debrided wounds.

A Market Leader in Absorbency

A recent study compared Opticell’s absorptive capabilities to those of our main competitors.

Helps to Prevent Maceration

Opticell’s Chytoform technology wicks fluid only vertically, not laterally. This reduces the risk of periwound maceration because wound fluid is not able to migrate across the dressing to reach this vulnerable skin.

Conforming to the Wound

Opticell (Chytoform)

The smooth, thin and conformable profile provides for intimate contact with the wound.

Competition (Stitched Gelling Fiber)

The ridges in the dressing may lead to an uneven wound contact surface.
