Askina® Sorb

Highly absorbing alginate dressing

Askina® Sorb is a sterile primary wound dressing made of fibers containing 85% of calcium alginate and 15% of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).
When in contact with wound exudate, the alginate-CMC fibers are fast gelling, resulting from an ionic exchange between calcium ions from the dressing and sodium ions from the
exudate, so as to form a soft moist gel conducive to natural healing.


  • Conformable and easy to apply
  • High absorption capacity
  • Forms soft gel which can be removed in one piece,
    without residue
  • Vertical absorption process: no lateral strike through, designed for avoiding wound edge maceration
  • Atraumatic dressing removal


Askina® Sorb is indicated for the management of moderately to heavily exuding wounds such as:

  • Pressure ulcers
  • Venous and arterial leg ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Donor sites
  • Trauma wound
  • Dermal lesions
