Mr. Regnier, Intl.Mktg.Director, B.Braun Medical (CoE Wound Care,France) commented, "Silicone technology (Askina(R) DresSil) provides a new standard of a traumatic wound care treatment whilst for infected wounds,the patented ionic silver alginate matrices (Askina(R) Calgitrol Ag),provide a broad antimicrobial effectiveness and help to prevent contamination from external bacteria".
