Cutimed Sorbact Swab is a flat, folded dressing to help wounds naturally heal. Like other Sorbact products from BSN, the Swab uses DACC technology to inactivate and bind or catch the bacteria instead of killing it. This means that when the dressing is changed, the bacteria is removed with it to reduce the bacterial load in the wound and create an optimal environment for healing. Also, DACC technology does not use chemical agents to accomplish this goal. Instead it uses hydrophobic interactions, a physical property, to get the bacteria to bind together and to the dressing. By not using chemical agents and by binding the bacteria instead of killing it, the cell walls in the wound area are kept intact to promote quicker and more natural healing. Keeping the cell wall intact also helps in the long-term prevention of infections. Because the bacteria becomes inactive, it is prevented from replicating and releasing more toxins into the wound.
