Geneva, IL (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
Argentum Medical, manufacturer of Silverlon® wound dressings, has signed a distribution agreement with sorbion GmbH & Co. KG (“sorbion”) to distribute its silver nylon wound, burn, and negative pressure dressings to certain markets in Western Europe.
Silverlon® wound dressings have a permanently plated metallic surface, which provides the antimicrobial benefits of silver without staining the skin. Designed for 7-day use, Silverlon® wound dressings contain 50 times the silver of typical “impregnated dressings” and provide long-lasting antimicrobial protection from a broad spectrum of pathogens, including MRSA & VRE. Silverlon wound dressings are available in multiple shapes and sizes, providing a single technology for surgical, burn, and chronic and acute wounds. Similar application procedures apply to all dressing types, simplifying training and compliance across departments.
