XuSorb(tm) Foam Wound Care Dressing Is Compatible With Microcyn(r) Technology Wound Care Products. (Photo: Business Wire)

Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCLS), a commercial medical technology company that designs, produces and markets safe and effective tissue care products based upon the Microcyn® Technology platform, today introduced XuSorb™ Foam Wound Dressing with a waterproof polyurethane covering for the U.S. professional wound care and surgical market. Able to absorb four times more exudate than hydrocolloids, the latex-free XuSorb Foam delivers optimum results when applied to a wound following use of the company’s Microcyn-based wound care products.

XuSorb Foam is a non-adhesive Microcyn-compatible foam dressing that delivers superior fluid handling while providing a barrier to contamination. It is suitable for many types of exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, donor sites and partial- and full-thickness wounds. XuSorb maintains a moist wound-healing environment while its semi-permeable polyurethane covering permits water vapor transmission away from the wound.

Noridian Administrative Services LLC, which is the pricing, data analysis and coding contractor for the Medicare program, has assigned Medicare HCPCS code #A6210 to the XuSorb Foam.

“This is a logical extension to the Microcyn product line,” said Hoji Alimi, founder and CEO of Oculus. “We expect the launch to contribute to our ongoing revenue growth moving forward. XuSorb is a synergistic follow-on step to provide healthcare professionals with a highly absorbent foam dressing that can compatibly protect wounds following the application of Microcyn solution or hydrogel.”

Since July of this year, Oculus has undertaken an extensive sampling program with U.S. wound care professionals, secured Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement and will supply via a national U.S. distributor. Oculus’ 77-person fully commissioned sales team will market the XuSorb Foam, available in ten-packs of single-wrap 4.5” x 4.5” and 6” x 6” sizes, beginning immediately.
