  • What is PHMB?: PHMB stands for Polyhexamethylene Biguanide, which is a gentle yet efficacious antiseptic. It is in the chlorhexidine family but not as cytotoxic.

  • Yes, PHMB is commonly found in household cleaners and contact lens solutions: There is no known resistance to PHMB. In fact, similar antiseptics have been commonly used for years with no major resistance. PHMB annihilates the cell wall. This mode of action makes resistance highly unlikely.

  • Why use an AMD™ antimicrobial dressing?: AMD™ antimicrobial dressings resist bacterial colonization, reduce bacterial penetration, limit cross-contamination, and maintain balance of native skin flora.
  • Do AMD™ antimicrobial dressings impact healthy skin?: Clinical studies have shown that AMD™ antimicrobial dressings have no negative impact to epithelialization. In fact, it appears that AMD™ antimicrobial dressings help maintain native skin flora levels.
