Diacoll-S

Diacoll -STM is a Collagen Gentamicin Sheet in the form a sponge / Transparant film containing collagen and gentamicin sulphate. The collagen gentamicin implant is composed of highly purified type I collagen obtained from bovine Tendon, which acts as a vehicle for the antimicrobial gentamicin. The collagen is derived from specifically controlled and certified animals and is highly purified to avoid any antiginicity. Gentamicin sulphate is a wide spectrum antibiotic that provides highly effective topical treatment in primary and secondary bacterial infections of the skin. Diacoll -STM is produced using the latest triple helix collagen technique to provide an optimum degree of flexibility and rigidity combined with the most predictable resorptive process.

Mechanism of Action :
Diacoll -STM comprises of a collagen foam incoproated with gentamicin sulphate. When applied on the wound the collagen foam acts as a vehicle for the antimicrobial gentamicin. Collagen is absorbed slowly by the tissue in 6 to 10 days after is application. The purpose of the implant is to provide a high concentration of local gentamicin at the site of implantation. The Diacoll -STM comes prepacked and sterile and is intended for single use only.
