DuoDERM® CGF® Control Gel Formula Dressing is an adhesive (hydrocolloid) wound contact dressing. The hydrocolloids are contained within the dressing mass. The adhesive layer contains polymers which enhance the dressing’s ability to contain wound exudate by forming a cohesive gel. The self adherent dressing absorbs wound fluid and provides a moist environment which supports the body’s healing process and aids in the removal of unnecessary material from the wound (autolytic debridement) without damaging new tissue.
DuoDerm CGF Control Gel Formula Dressing may be used alone or in combination with other wound care products as directed by your healthcare professional. DuoDerm CGF Control Gel Formula Dressing acts as a barrier to the wound against bacterial, viral and other external contamination. The dressing has been shown in laboratory experiments to block the passage of bacteria and viruses.
