Scientists Imbed Biosciences granted permission to manufacture them developed ultrathin hydrogel bandages. Bandage kills almost all bacteria is known.
The invention researchers Imbed Biosciences called Microlyte Ag. This - flexible and thin material such as plaster. The unique dressings is that due to the thickness and elasticity of when to impose it on the wound, it penetrates even to remote places called fissures.
Traditionally, to kill bacteria in fissures using washing solutions. This effect does not last long, and therefore kills fewer bacteria and increases the rehabilitation period.
Dressing well stick to the wound edges and not dumped. After the time you can just rinse with water. In addition, studies have shown that as the healing of a wound dressing itself gradually disappears.
Microlyte Ag has a strong antimicrobial and antifungal effect by mikronapylennya silver ions.
Bandages with silver existed before, but the invention of scientists from Imbed Biosciences silver containing approximately 100 times smaller without compromising the antibacterial effect. The less precious metal content due to the fact that silver ions are highly toxic not only bacteria, but also for human cells. Most complications in the application of these decisions is existing, it is toxic damage silver ions.
Bandage kills 99% of bacteria, which comes in contact. Its effectiveness confirmed in tests against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and vancomycin-resistant enterococci.
