27 Sep MediPlus™ Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Silver Advanced Wound Care Products
ATLANTA, Sept. 27 — MediPurpose, a master distributor and manufacturer of medical products, today announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its MediPlus™ foam wound care products that contain antibacterial silver.
MediPurpose also announced that its expanding MediPlus™ advanced wound care product portfolio now includes Foam Ag, Comfort Foam Ag and Super Foam Ag dressings.
The new foam Ag dressings meet the latest standards for antibacterial control established by the FDA and provide an effective barrier to bacterial penetration. The silver foam dressings are indicated for use on a wide range of chronic and traumatic wounds that included ulcers (arterial, diabetic and venous), pressure sores, donor sites, surgical incisions/excisions and first- and second-degree burns.
Product is expected to be available in the fourth quarter, and information for requesting pricing and samples is available online.
“The addition of these silver foam advanced wound care products to our portfolio is an exciting development,” said MediPurpose Vice President Wound Care Michael Riddle.

“We have been very pleased with the number of positive comments we’ve received about the depth of our advanced wound care product portfolio, its competitive nature and the acknowledgement that our value-based pricing should position us for success in today’s cost-conscious environment,” said Riddle.
