Endoform® Antimicrobial Is an extracellular matrix which supports all phases of healing. It contains:
Endoform® Antimicrobial is a natural collagen scaffold with 0.3% ionic silver to protect it from microbial colonisation. Benefits include:
Endoform® Antimicrobial Dermal Template is an advanced wound care dressing primarily composed of natural, non-reconstituted collagen retaining the native extracellular matrix associated macromolecules including fibronectin, glycosaminoglycans, laminin, and elastin.
Endoform® Antimicrobial Dermal Template contains approximately 12 pg/cm2 (-0.3% w/w) ionic silver, intended to inhibit colonisation of the dressing. The dressing is effective against a broad spectrum of microbes, including Acinetobacter baumannii, Candida albicans, Candida parapsilosis, Candida glabrata, Escherichia coli, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), coagulase negative Staphylococci, group A (beta-hemolytic) Streptococci, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aspergillus niger; and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE). The dressing provides sustained antimicrobial effectiveness within the dressing for up to 7 days.

Endoform® extracellular matrix (ECM) stays intact in the wound bed to help provide visual cues to wound healing and modulate unbalanced wound proteases. This animation describes how Endoform® works in the wound bed to assist with wound healing and help build new tissue.
Watch as Dr. Amaya (Pediatric Wound Care & Laser Specialists, Houston, Texas) demonstrates the proper use of Endoform® to dress and protect a child’s wounds. This dermal template helps wounds heal and close, as well as help grow new skin over your child’s wound.
Chronic wounds are characterized by elevated wound proteases and high bioburden which limits healing and traps wounds in the inflammatory phase. The following Clinical Resource shows how Endoform® can be used to help wounds escape the inflammatory phase.
Skin is composed of cells and extracellular matrix (ECM). The ECM is an essential tissue component that supports cells and directs important cell processes. In wounds, tissue ECM is missing or damaged, and Endoform® ECM technology can be used to replace the missing ECM. This clinical resource provides an overview of the science of ECM, its function and composition and how Endoform® can be used during all phases of healing to build tissue.
This resource helps guide the use of both products in combination.
Guidance for the application of Endoform® Natural and Endoform® Antimicrobial products.
Use Endoform® Antimicrobial to escape the inflammatory phase earlier.
