Epiprotect®2117 is indicated for patients with full and partial thickness burns.
Partial thickness and superficial burns – The product has a nanostructure similar to collagen. If the wound is not infected and not deeper than the depth of hair follicles, the protein secreted by the wound will penetrate into the nanostructure of the dressing and anchor it to the wound.
Full thickness burns – Epiprotect® behaves in a different manner for deeper burns. If the wound is deeper than the depth of the hair follicles, the dressing will not adhere and can be used to protect from bacteria from the outside and to keep a moist environment, acting as a temporary barrier.
A one-time application
Once Epiprotect®2117 is adhered to a superficial wound, it will stay in place until the wound is fully healed. During this time you will be able to monitor the wound.
Epiprotect®2117 comes in a glass vial filled with a storage solution.
EpiProtect® is ready to use straight out of the packaging.
