KytoCel® is a highly absorbent, antimicrobial wound dressing with haemostatic, analgesic and scar-improving properties.

What is the KytoCel® wound dressing?

  • KytoCel® is a highly absorbent, antimicrobial wound dressing with haemostatic, analgesic and scar-improving properties.
  • KytoCel® can be applied directly to the wound bed for improved primary wound care.
  • It is a microfiber dressing containing Chitosan, a natural biopolymer extracted from shellfish.
  • When KytoCel® encounters wound exudate, it turns into a gel that keeps the wound surface optimally moist and thus promotes wound healing.
  • Because KytoCel® retains the wound fluid that has been converted into gel, KytoCel® does not cause maceration of the wound edges.
  • KytoCel® is intended for use on moderately to heavily exuding complex wounds of varying depth, shape and size.
  • Accelerates wound healing1,3,4,5
