SALT LAKE CITY, UT, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - ABL Medical, LLC has
officially launched their new SilvrSTAT® Antibacterial Wound Dressing
Gel into the United States market. SilvrSTAT® is the first of a new
class of medical products based on the company's patented
nano-molecular silver technology.
ABL Medical's new SilvrSTAT® is cleared as a 510(k) medical device for
the use in the management of 1st and 2nd degree burns, wounds such as
stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, lacerations,
abrasions, skin tears, surgical incision sites, device insertion site
wounds, graft sites and donor sites.
SilvrSTAT® has been shown in laboratory tests to inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, antibiotic resistant strains, including MRSA and VRE, as well as fungi such as Candida albicans.
SilvrSTAT®'s unique technology results in a 32ppm antibacterial wound
dressing gel which provides quick and continuous antibacterial activity
allowing for efficient wound management. It has no known or expected
adverse events due to the low 32ppm silver concentration. Visualization
of the wound is possible through the transparent gel. There is no sulfa
component or alcohol, and SilvrSTAT® is non-flammable.
"ABL Medical's launch of SilvrSTAT® marks the beginning of a new era for
wound dressing gels", said Bob Holladay, CEO of ABL Medical. "Our new
multivalent, catalytic, nano-molecular silver technology provides rapid
antibacterial activity at extremely low concentrations. In head to head
studies, SilvrSTAT® has demonstrated significantly superior bacteria
kill times versus other currently available silver products approved
for use in wound management. As a result, SilvrSTAT® provides a
significant advance in the promotion of a pathogen-free healing
environment with no known or expected adverse events," added Holladay.
SilvrSTAT® is currently stocked by major U.S. wholesalers including
McKesson, Cardinal, and Owens and Minor and is covered by numerous
pharmacy benefit management companies. For more information on
