BioFilm’s expertise lies in developing new and effective film products capable of delivering the desired level of active ingredient directly to the wound site. As well as using hydrocolloids such as pectin, alginates and starch, BioFilm has world leading experience in the use of collagen and PVA. Employing a variety of polymers, from fast dissolving to those more slowly absorbed by the body, the actives are released in a controlled manner to promote healing and/or haemostasis.
BioFilm has successfully developed a number of wound care films for advanced wound dressing, for example:
PVP Iodine Film
Dry film acts as a carrier for PVP Iodide offering a convenient application of potentially difficult to handle Iodide paste. The film allows ease of handling during conversion into a composite wound dressing to offer targeted release of ingredients directly onto the wound site. This film is commercially available for customers in reel stock format for conversion into wound dressings.
Dry film acts as a carrier for Honey (natural and bacterial active). The film is a convenient application for difficult to handle honey paste and allows ease of handling during conversion into composite wound dressings. This film is commercially available for customers in reel stock format for conversion into wound dressings.
