  • Conforms to wound contours
  • Low fiber shed
  • High wet and dry strength
  • Soft and conformable


  • Easy to remove - When used in a moderate to highly exuding wound, the dressing forms a soft gel, which does not adhere to the delicate healing tissues in the wound bed. The dressing can be easily lifted out of the wound in one piece, or washed out with saline.
  • Conforms to wound contours - AlgiSite M is very soft and conformable, allowing it to be molded, folded or cut to meet a wide range of wound shapes and sizes. As the fibers gel, an even more intimate contact with the wound is produced and maintained.
  • Less fiber shed - All fiber based alginates release fibers when handled, however the advanced bonding technique employed in AlgiSite M greatly reduces this.
  • Moist wound environment -The production of a gel by the action of exudate on the alginate fibers creates a moist wound environment at the wound surface. This helps prevent eschar formation and promotes an optimal moist wound environment. The dressing allows wound contraction to occur, which may help reduce scarring and also allows gaseous exchange necessary for a healthy wound bed.
  • Highly absorbent - In-vitro studies have shown that AlgiSite M can absorb 13 times its own weight in exudate. This allows the dressing to remain in the wound for up to 7 days, depending on the nature of the wound and the volume of exudate.
