Bactisure™ Wound Lavage

Advancing Biofilm Removal

Bactisure_Wound_Lavage_Front (1)

Bactisure Wound Lavage is an aqueous solution used to remove debris, including microorganisms, from wounds using the Pulsavac Plus Wound Debridement System. The solution is successful at removing structurally resistant forms of bacteria, including biofilms, on all wound types.

Ingredients include ethanol (solvent), acetic acid (pH modifier), sodium acetate (buffer), benzalkonium chloride (surfactant), and purified water. Bactisure Wound Lavage is supplied in a 1000 ml single-dose flexible plastic container/bag with an integrated single spike port.

Key Application Steps

Apply just prior to wound closure using Zimmer Biomet Pulsavac Plus pulsed lavage system.

Immediately after irrigating the wound bed, the wound bed MUST BE rinsed away with an equal amount of normal saline

A New Approach to Biofilm Removal

Bacteria can produce Extracelluar Polymeric Substance (EPS) to shield themselves from both mechanical and chemical attack. Bactisure Wound Lavage was specifically designed to remove these structurally resistant forms of bacteria. Our solution physically deconstructs the protective EPS matrix, making bacteria more susceptible to traditional antibiotics and the body’s normal defense mechanisms.

 

Deconstructs

Bactisure Wound Lavage breaks up crosslinks within biofilm EPS.

 

Removes

With EPS crosslinks removed, Bactisure Wound Lavage solubilizes biofilms for easy removal via pulsed lavage. Exposed bacteria are subject to lavage removal or inactivation via traditional antibiotics and the body’s normal defense mechanisms.

Indications

Indicated for Use on All Wound Types.
