The Prontosan® Difference

Millions of people around the world who have chronic wounds are looking for fast, lasting healing. B. Braun's innovative Protosan® Wound Solutions and Gels are designed for optimal wound management. The Prontosan difference are the two ingredients in the wound solutions and gels that combine to maximize cleansing power:

  • PHMP (Polyhexanide) functions as a preservative (also found in contact lense solution) that inhibits the growth of micro-organisms within the product.
  • Betain (surfactant) is a surface-active cleanser that provides immediate debridement.

Wound Classifications

Prontosan Wound Solutions may be used on ulcers, first and second degree burns, partial and full thickness wounds, and surgical incisions. Prontosan Wound Gel-X also is indicated for small and large surface wounds. 

Prontosan Wound Management

  • Gel X is a viscous gel that is an effective microbial barrier that facilitates autolytic debridement.
  • Irrigation Solution is intended for cleaning wounds and for moistening and lubricating absorbent wound dressings.
