Xennovate Medical ®

Hydrocolloid Technologies for Wound and Ostomy Applications

Xennovate Medical® can create a unique product from formulation to finished device.

We not only have many hydrocolloid formulas and thicknesses to meet differing needs, but we can then design and convert these component materials into a multitude of finished dressing designs.

Moist Wound Healing

Hydrocolloids act like an adhesive sponge soaking up exudations from a wound.  Absorbed moisture evaporates from the distal side through a vapor transmissible polyurethane film.  Healing is more effective in keeping with moist wound healing methodology.

Absorptive Capacity

A hydrocolloid’s absorptive capacity represents the major competetive advantage over more conventional dressing technologies as demonstrated in two of our studys of ostomy hydrocolloids and wound dressing hydrocolloids.

Intelligent Hydrocolloids

Known in the industry for our creative design skills, we have decades of experience inventing innovative applications commonly known as Intelligent Hydrocolloids.
