Why Are Our Antimicrobial Dressings a Smarter Choice?

How PHMB Works

Our AMD antimicrobial dressings contain PHMB (polyhexamethylene biguanide), a bacteria-killing polymer. PHMB attacks bacteria on and within the dressing fabric, helping keep infection out of the wound and limiting cross-contamination. Here’s how PHMB works:

  • PHMB binds to bacteria’s phospholipid (outer) membrane
  • Disrupts membrane, causing cytoplasm to leak out
  • Cell’s protective layer disintegrates
  • Cell collapses and dies

  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE)
  • Acinetobacter baumannii
  • Staphylococcus epidermidis
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Escherichia coli
  • Candida albicans
  • Coagulase-negative Staphylococcus
  • Proteus mirabilis
  • Serratia marcescens
  • Enterobacter cloacae
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Enterococcus faecalis
  • Propionibacterium acnes
