Advantages of Microdacyn60® Wound Care in comparison to chemical substances
Microdacyn60® Wound Care contains the preservatives sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid which ensure the product’s sterility. These compounds are naturally produced as defensive agents by mammalian neutrophils/monocytes as part of the immune system.
The primary mode of action of Microdacyn60 involves the mechanical removal of cellular debris, senescent cells, necrotic tissue, and foreign material from the skin and wound surface using a moistened dressing (e.g.gauze) along with irrigation. Removal of these materials through these actions is known to decrease infection rates and improve wound healing. The secondary mode of action is a function of the antimicrobial properties of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and its salt, hypochlorite (OCl–) (1). These ancillary medicinal substances which are present in Microdacyn60 in very low, non toxic amounts, assist in the removal of microorganisms.
Can remain in the wound and does not need to be rinsed out
Can also be used in exposed joints, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons
Does not develop bacterial resistance
The essential component of Microdacyn60® Wound Care is hypochlorous acid (HOCl). It is an important constituent of our innate immune system and is formed and released by the macrophages during phagocytosis. This represents a significant advantage over other wound-irrigation and antiseptic solutions as highly organized cell structures such as human tissue can tolerate the action of Microdacyn60® Wound Care while single-celled microorganisms cannot.
Low Irritation Threshold
Microdacyn60® Wound Care is tolerated extremely well and has achieved an irrigation threshold of 1.022 in the HET-CAM assay.

Due to its unique chemistry, Microdacyn60® Wound Care is much more stable than similar products on the market and therefore maintains much higher levels of hypochlorous acid over its shelf life.
Microdacyn60® Wound Care is ideal for use in exposed joints, tendons, bones, and ligaments. In addition, it is possible to use Microdacyn60® Wound Care for installation in negative-pressure wound therapy and in peritoneal and joint irrigation.
