Frequently asked questions about Flaminal®

Antibacterial system

 

Flaminal Hydro Enzym Alginogel moderately exuding wounds Flaminal Forte Enzym Alginogel heavily exuding wounds
 
How do Flaminal® Hydro and Flaminal® Forte control and maintain bacterial balance?

Step 1: Flaminal® Hydro and Flaminal® Forte absorb exudate pus and bacteria into its structure
Step 2: The enzyme systemconsists of 2 enzymes, glucose oxidase and lactoperoxidase.

The first enzyme, glucose oxidase forms a peroxide. The second enzyme, lactoperoxidase immediately captures the peroxide and transforms it into oxygen radicals (ROS, Reactive Oxygen Species). These radicals destroy the bacterial cell wall. This is a selective process. Only bacteria are destroyed and not human cells, such as keratinocytes and fibroblasts.
