Presentation of TLC-Ag

MANAGEMENT AND PREVENTION OF INFECTION

 

 TLC- Ag technologyThe TLC-Ag Technology is the combination of the unique TLC technology from Laboratoires Urgo with the antibacterial performance of silver salts.

 

The silver salts provide a bactericidal effect on most of the microorganisms involved in secondary infection: gram + (MRSA, Staphylococcus Aureus…), Gram – (Pseudomonas Aeruginosa…), and yeasts.

 

Composition

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 In contact with wound exudate, the silver sulphate breaks down (Ag2S04+2 Ag+ + S04) and releases the Ag+ ion, while the Carboxymethylcellulose particles become hydrated and swell to form a surface lipidocolloid film.

  • Dissolved in this way, the silver ions join the lipido-colloid layer and become active. The release of Ag+ from the silver sulphate and its bioavailability at the surface of the wound are exudate-dependant.

This controlled release of Ag+ at the surface of the wound garantees a constant and reliable antibacterial activity strictly in contact with the wound bed.
