Device Description
SupraCel™ is suitable for application and management of many different types of wound including: leg ulcers, pressure sores, surgical wounds, exuding sloughy or necrotic wounds and first & second degree burns. SupraCel™ is a flat sheet wound care hydrogel with a breathable adhesive dressing, available in three sizes, in a sterile pouch format – FD-1143 50mm x 50mm (2” x 2”) flat sheet hydrogel with adhesive dressing – FD-1141 100mm x 100mm (4” x 4”) flat sheet hydrogel with adhesive dressing – FD-1151 (200mm x 75mm – 8” x 3”) flat sheet hydrogel with adhesive dressing. SupraCel™ is a cross linked sterile hydrogel containing propylene glycol, cross linked within a solid polymer matrix. Simple to use in a two stage peel back method, the translucent flat sheet remains visible through the clear breathable film dressing at all times, therefore minimising the frequency of dressing removal for wound site inspection. Depending on wound conditions, SupraCel™ Sheet dressing has the ability to absorb exudate from wounds which are light to heavy exuding whilst maintaining an excellent moisture balance. Due to its fully cross linked nature, there will no maceration of the skin surrounding the wound. The flat sheet SupraCel™ retains its shape and integrity throughout its use.

Contraindications
There are no known contraindications to the use of SupraCel™ as a topical wound dressing.

Sterilization
