Highly absorbing alginate dressing

Askina® Sorb is a sterile primary wound dressing made of fibers
containing 85% of calcium alginate and 15% of carboxymethylcellulose
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


  • 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 should not be used for surgical implantations or for treating third degree burns. The simultaneous use of topical agents, such as antiseptics and antibiotics with Askina® Sorb is not indicated. This is because some of these agents used alone may induce reactions. Therefore, their use with Askina® Sorb may reduce or negate its beneficial effect. Askina® Sorb will have little benefit if applied to very dry or necrotic wounds. Do not use if pack is damaged or opened.


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
