Together we can make the change to safe infection prevention and management

It's time to change, it's time to go green! Due to the purely physical mode of action in a moist wound enviroment, Cutimed Sorbact binds and removes bacteria without the release of any antimicrobial agents. So experience the efficacy of Cutimed Sorbact, for the prevention and management of wound infection. 1,2
