The first and only concentrated surfactant
for wound bed preparation.
PluroGel uses pioneering micelle matrix technology to help you achieve a wound bed that exceeds expectations. This highly concentrated surfactant works to hydrate the wound, control exudate and provide gentle debridement. FDA-cleared, PluroGel helps you create an optimal and receptive healing environment.
Removes barriers to healing.
Softens, loosens and lifts slough and necrotic debris from the wound bed.
Supports quality healing.
Creates an ideal moist wound environment that assists with natural granulation and epithelialization.
Promotes patient comfort and compliance.
Goes on and rinses off gently, so patients experience less pain and anxiety during dressing changes.
“My team called it a wow moment.”

Mechanisms of action
Surfactanct-based autolytic debridement
PluroGel is a stable, viscous gel composed of a high concentration of surfactant micelles. Each micelle has a hydrophilic outer surface that softens and loosens wound debris, and a hydrophobic inner core that traps debris. The micelles link to form a matrix that continually expands and contracts. This creates a cleansing/rinsing action that disrupts the surface tension holding slough and necrotic tissue in place.
Inverse thermodynamic properties enable PluroGel to thicken in a warm environment and remain on the wound bed, allowing constant contact with debris. Because PluroGel is 100 percent water soluble, debris is removed by rinsing with saline or cleanser at dressing change.
Patient case study
Bilateral leg ulcers
Noticeable improvement in wound size and necrotic area after 10 days.*
Multiple bilateral leg ulcers
Severe ulcerative colitis resulting in total colectomy, pyoderma gangrenosum
