B Braun Prontosan Wound Gel 30mL Amorphous Liquid Gel with Polyexanide and Betaine
Prontosan® Wound Gel is a ready-to-use gel containing 0.1% Polyhexanide (preservative), Betaine (surfactant), Glycerol (moisturizer) and Hydroxyethylcellulose (gel) in water for the purpose of cleaning, disinfecting and moisturizing acid and chronic wounds such as ulcers (diabetic, venous, bedsores). It does not inhibit granulation and epithelization. It cleans, moisturizes the wounds and prevents the creation of the biofilm as well as the reduction of the bacterial load.
How is Prontosan Wound GEL used?

Apply Prontosan Wound Gel Fluid to the wound to extend the antimicrobial action of the solution for up to 72 hours.
