  • Longer wear time vs Intrasite Gel<sup>1</sup>

A transparent, amorphous hydrogel containing sodium alginate to gently and effectively debride necrotic tissue and fibrinous slough.

3M™ Nu-Gel™ Hydrogel with Alginate creates a moist wound healing environment which assists with natural autolytic debridement by donating moisture to the wound bed whilst the alginate component enhances its absorptive capabilities.

The gel also can be used to soften and hydrate eschar by facilitating rehydration of the wound.
