Maxorb Extra AG Silver Alginate ropes are highly absorbent and utilize High G (Guluronic Acid) Calcium Alginate, Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and Ionic Silver. When a wound drains into the rope, the exudate (drainage) dissolves the silver and activates the silver ions. The more fluid that's absorbed, the more silver ions are released. This creates a controlled release antimicrobial effect, as silver ions are excellent protection from microorganisms like MRSA (a contagious staff bacteria) and VRE (antibiotic resistant bacteria). The controlled release of silver ions also takes place in very small amounts, which means that healthy tissue will not suffer damage. Maxorb Extra AG Silver Alginate ropes are non-irritating, bio-compatible and won't harm or hinder new granulation tissue. Each rope is one by twelve inches.
