Product Profile

Tissue tolerability and biocompatibility
Non-irritating, non-sensitising, painless, without tissue toxicity, no impairment granulation and no impairment of epithelialisation. The good tolerability of octenidine has been confirmed over many years clinical experience and clinical studies on chronic wounds.

Testing of the preservative properties of octenidine in the gel
octenisept® gel shows excellent inactivation of pathogens after as early as 1 minute. The latter was determined in the quantitative suspension test with high protein exposure ('dirty conditions'). The results showed that the inactivation of pathogens in octenisept® gel was sufficient against all test organisms after a 1 minute application.
