epicite hydro - the hydro-active dressing for an ideal wound healing environment

The biotechnology derived cellulose provides unique properties to the wound dressing epicitehydro. It contains a minimum of 95% isotonic saline solution due to its very dense and homogeneous structure.

  • Creates a supportive moist environment to the wound with a favorable hydrobalance and water vapor permeability.

  • Absorbs excess wound exudates. 1

  • Provides an immediate cooling effect after its application. 2

  • Adapts easily to all types and shapes of wounds and can be cut to a sizable fit.

  • Dries out during the healing process and after successful epithelization can be peeled off easily and nearly pain-free.

  • Easy to store (5 – 30°C).

The unique structure of epicitehydro provides plenty of moisture to the skin




epicite hydro has been developed to support the healing of acute dermal wounds. It is proven for superficial and deep partial thickness wounds with a slight to moderate level of exudate.

  • Superficial and deep partial thickness thermal or chemical burn wounds (1st and 2nd degree)

  • Scalds

  • Skin graft donor sites

  • Abrasions

  • Lacerations


epicite hydro sets new standards for an advanced wound management

  • Less pain and stress for patients due to the reduced number of dressing changes

  • Can optionally be soaked with antiseptic solutions and is easy to apply

  • Reduces nursing time and shortens hospital stay



1. Wound debridement.
Ensure a good hemostasis. Assessement of wound depth.


2. Optional step: epicite hydro can be soaked for approximately 30 minutes in commonly used antiseptic solutions (like Octenidine or PHMB)


3. Apply epicitehydro on the wound. It should cover the surrounding healthy tissue by at least 1-2 cm.


4. For larger wounds, apply further epicite hydro dressings with overlaps of 1-2 cm. epicite hydro can be cut to fit any size of wound.

5. Apply one layer of fatty gauze.

6. If necessary, put material to absorb the wound exudate like a gauze compress on the fatty gauze for the first three days. Then use a fixation bandage.


7. The healing process is successful, when epicitehydro is dried out and the edges begin to peel.


8. The detached material should be cut off during each wound assessment until the entire dressing has come off (same principle as a natural scab).

A wound dressing assessment should be done at least every 48 hours: epicitehydro and the fatty gauze remain on the wound.

For superficial burn wounds (2a degree): no dressing change required.

For mixed superficial and deep partial thickness burn wounds (2a & 2b degree) a dressing change may be required:

  • Rehydrate epicitehydro for an easy and nearly pain-free removal.

  • After assessment of the wound, apply a new epicitehydro dressing.
