Algisite M

Algisite M is a calcium alginate dressing that forms a soft gel when it comes into contact with wound exudate.


  • Easy to remove
  • Fast gelling
  • Conforms to the contours of a wounds
  • Minimal fiber shedding
  • High wet and dry strength
  • Soft and conformable


  • On moderate to heavily exuding wounds, Algisite M forms a gel which does not adhere to delicate healing tissue so it can be easily lifted out of the wound or washed out with saline
  • Algisite M is very conformable allowing it to be molded, folded or cut to fit a wide variety of wound sizes and shapes and as the fibers gel it creates an even greater contact with the wound
  • Due to the bonding technique used in Algisite M it greatly reduces shedding of the fibers
  • The production of gel helps create a moist wound environment and helps to prevent eschar formation and it also allows wound contaction to occur which helps reduce scarring and allows gaseous exchange
  • Algsite M can absorb up to 13 times its own weight in exudate which allows the dressing to remain in the wound for up to 7 days

  • Abrasions
  • Skin tears
  • Minor burns
  • Leg ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
