Biobrane is a biosynthetic wound dressing constructed of a silicone film with a nylon fabric partially imbedded into the film. The fabric presents to the wound bed a complex 3-D structure of trifilament thread to which collagen has been chemically bound. Blood/sera clot in the nylon matrix, thereby firmly adhering the dressing to the wound until epithelialisation occurs. Smith & Nephew are now the exclusive international distributors for Biobrane. For more information contact your local Smith & Nephew customer service centre.
Biobrane complements Smith & Nephew's existing burns products. The award winning Versajet Hydrosurgery System allows surgeons to preserve as much viable dermis as possible and Acticoat anti-microbial dressing can be used to prevent the possible risk of infection before or after Biobrane is used to progress the wound towards healing.
