DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive can add strength and protection to an incision.
When used in addition to sutures, DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive was shown ex vivo to add 75% more strength to wound closure than sutures alone1
Protective barrier that adds strength and inhibits bacteria.4,5
DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive provides a microbial barrier with 99% protection in vitro for at least 72 hours against organisms commonly responsible for surgical site infections (SSIs)2, 3*
Provides strength to maintain barrier and wound closure integrity.3,6
DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive demonstrated in vitro inhibition of gram-positive bacteria (MRSA & MRSE) and gram-negative bacteria (E. coli)†
A unique formulation to help support successful wound closure outcomes
A patented, thicker formula with a unique blend of plasticizers and an initiator for precise control. Plasticizers increase flexibility and 3-dimensional strength for secure wound closure and patient comfort4 Initiator enables consistent setting time across various conditions and skin types7
