PHMB Antibacterial Alginate Dressing
LUOFUCON® PHMB Antibacterial Alginate Dressing is a
sterile, single-use dressing consisting of calcium alginate fiber
treated with polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB)，which is a
brand new advanced wound care product. It solves the
passivated problem of chemical reaction between alginate and
PHMB, which provides safe and good 7-day antimicrobial
activities for infected wounds. This dressing not only has
alginate property of providing moist wound environment, but
also offers PHMB advantage of highly effective safety.
Safe and effective for wound
Inhibits a broad-spectrum of
infection up to 99.99% for 7 days.
Provides moist environment to
help promote wound healing.
No evidence of bacterial resistance.
Longer wearing time and cost effective.
Experimental pictures and data show that LUOFUCON® PHMB Antibacterial Alginate Dressing has rapid effectiveness
against multi-drug resistant bacteria, such as MRSA and VRE, with a 99.99% bactericidal rate on the first day, and maintains this effect for the next 2-7 days.
Through years of technical research, FORYOU MEDICAL innovated Antibacterial Laboratory has invented the patented technology of PHMB antibacterial
alginate fiber and the corresponding preparation method of antibacterial dressing*. By grafting and loading PHMB on alginate fiber at the very beginning, the
patented technology not only solves the technical problem of rapid passivation of antibacterial activity after mixing PHMB and alginate, but also overcomes
the problem of easy free releasing of PHMB. It achieves long-term good antibacterial activity with low content, guarantees the antibacterial performance, and
improves the safety and effectiveness.
The carboxylated alginate fiber is grafted with PHMB by amide reaction to avoid the reaction between guanidine group and the anion in alginate, and retain the antibacterial activity of guanidine group in PHMB.
Grafting technology firmly anchors PHMB in alginate
fibers. Compared with other impregnated PHMB
dressings, LUOFUCON® PHMB Antibacterial
Alginate Dressing does not release free PHMB into
the wound bed, preventing PHMB from causing
additional irritation to the fragile new tissues and
providing gentle care to the wound.
PHMB has been in use for 60 years in Europe and US. It is highly cationic, and attracts various kinds of bacteria, which are usually negatively charged. It is believed to adhere to and disrupt
target cell membranes, causing them to leak potassium ions and other cytosolic components, which results in cell death*.
Bacteria are absorbed into LUOFUCON® PHMB
Antibacterial Alginate Dressing along with the
PHMB with cations in the dressing easily attracts
bacteria with anions.
The binding of anion and cation disrupts the
integrity of bacterial cell membrane.
Loss of cell membrane function leads to leakage of cellular components and accelerates bacterial
Bacteria will be removed along with the dressing
during dressing change.
By effectively managing the bioburden, the wound
will gradually heal.

LUOFUCON® PHMB Antibacterial Alginate Wound Dressing is indicated for first aid to help in minor abrasions, minor
cuts, minor lacerations, minor scrapes, minor scalds and
LUOFUCON® PHMB Alginate Dressing is indicated for the
management ofmoderate to heavily exudating wounds, and partial to
full thickness wounds,including postoperative wounds, first and
second degree burns, trauma wounds, leg ulcers, pressure ulcers,
diabetic ulcers, graft and donor sites.
LUOFUCON® PHMB Alginate Dressing must not be used during the first four months of pregnancy (at any time thereafter,
a strict benefit/risk assessment has to be performed).
LUOFUCON® PHMB Alginate Dressing must not be used in patients to polyhexamethylene biguanide.
Unlike regular impregnated manufacturing method of the other PHMB wound dressings, LUOFUCON® PHMB Antibacterial Alginate Dressing achieves that a lower content of PHMB has sustained broad-spectrum antibacterial effect by using state-of-the-art technology to bond PHMB onto alginate fibers at the very beginning. Bacteria and moisture are well managed in the dressing. It protects against the development of wound infection by decreasing the
bioburden in the dressing and bacterial penetration through the dressing.
* This technology has been patented in China, the United States and the European Union, the corresponding patent numbers are: CN107385917A, US 2019/0284727 A1, EP3660191 A1.
This product is single use, and for external use.
Do not use it if the pouch is damaged or opened.
Do not resterilize.
Do not suggest to use this product on dry wound.
LUOFUCON® PHMB Alginate Dressing is intended for short-term use up to 28 days.
Great Innovation leads to the world’s first Alginate Dressing with antimicrobial PHMB.
