KytoCel Chitosan absorbent gelling fibre

KytoCel is a soft, sterile, absorbent gelling fibre dressing made from chitosan.

KytoCel is highly absorbent, conformable and transforms into a soft gel upon absorption of exudate1,2,3. KytoCel helps maintain a moist wound healing environment for optimal wound healing, conforming closely to the wound bed for optimal interaction.

The dressing can aid autolytic debridement and will remain intact during use (one-piece removal)4,5. KytoCel will not damage newly formed tissue4,5.
