An Advanced Antimicrobial Wound Dressing That Works Where Others Fail

It is estimated that every failed attempt at healing a wound costs a facility an average of $170-$681 in materials and labor alone!1 Factor in the increased risks of wound deterioration and patient wellbeing and the need and benefit of healing a wound quickly and effectively becomes readily apparent.

What if you could provide your staff and patients with an easy-to-use antimicrobial foam dressing that offers exceptional results and an up to 3 day wear time? Enter DermaRite's® DermaBlue+™ Foam. 

DermaBlue+ Foam combines triple action antimicrobial protection with a unique micro-pore foam that wicks exudate away from the wound and kills over 99% of bacteria within. This helps to disrupt the formation of biofilm and aids in the healing of even the most challenging chronic wounds.

How does it work? Three proven antimicrobials - Gentian Violet, Methylene Blue, and Silver Ions - embedded in the fibers of the foam work synergistically to kill over 99% of bacteria in the dressing. Not only have each of these antimicrobials been used to treat wounds for centuries, but studies have shown that the three ingredients work together to be up to 3 times more effective than any of the ingredients alone.2

Combined with an Advanced Capillary Action highly absorbent proprietary foam that wicks bacteria-laden exudate into the dressing and away from the wound bed, DermaBlue+ Foam:​

  • Provides sustained, broad spectrum antimicrobial protection for up to 3 days
  • Helps inhibit the growth of biofilm by absorbing exudate and killing the microbes within
  • Provides an optimal wound healing environment

Best of all, DermaBlue+ Foam is easy to use and comfortable for patients. It is soft, light weight, ready to use and easy to apply. It can be cut, layered, and used for wounds with tunneling and undermining.

Available in two thicknesses and multiple sizes, DermaBlue+ Foam is the ideal wound dressing for tackling wounds before they deteriorate, or even healing chronic or challenging wounds.
