Chitosan-based Chytoform technology transforms the absorbent fibers of the dressing into a clear and conformable gel.
Gelling action helps manage drainage and remove exudate from wounds, trapping it for removal at the dressing change.
Ideal for partial- and full-thickness wounds of all drainage levels.
Up to a 7-day wear time.
Indicated for use to control minor bleeding; ideal for partial- and full-thickness wounds of all drainage levels.
The ribbon is used to pack deep wounds with a secondary dressing placed over it.
The ribbon is 0.75" wide and 18" long. 5 ribbons per box.

Chytoform Chitosan-based Gelling Technology
Chytoform gelling fiber is primarily composed of chitosan, a well-known biological material derived from crustacean shells. Chitosan’s unique chemistry, including a positive charge at physiological pH, has made it the center of much academic and clinical research.
Our Opticell dressings are the first application of this advanced biological material for use in chronic wound care, but chitosan has been used in other health care applications (e.g., topical hemostat, treatment of surgical wounds and traumatic injuries and in dietary supplements) because of its unique properties.
When Opticell with Chytoform technology comes into contact with moisture, it transform into a strong, absorbent and conformable gel that controls minor bleeding common in newly debrided wounds. These characteristics allow Opticell to deliver excellent outcomes.
