When applied as microfibrils the bovine collagen of naturesQue ColAid B has an extremely diverse range of uses. naturesQue ColAid B has the familiar intrinsic hemostatic properties of collagen and can be used to manage various indications. These include dental wounds and ulcers (not infected) and periodontal, surgical, and traumatic wounds.
An essential component of collagen is water—it makes up to 60% of the weight of collagen. In the physiological state the water molecules integrate seamlessly into the collagen molecule and follow its helical structure.
naturesQue ColAid B is made up of purified, dried collagen that absorbs fluids and can form a viscous gel. This creates a moist wound environment that manages healing in which the wound space and the new tissue are protected.
The bovine collagen microfibrils are available in single tubes in a storage box. It is easy to remove the microfibrils from the tube using forceps. naturesQue ColAid B is applied dry directly to the wound bed where it immediately absorbs fluid and transforms to a highly viscous gel.
