Vancive Medical Technologies™, DUKAL™ Sign Agreement For Distribution Of Absorbent Wound Dressings In USA And Canada

Stocks in this article: AVY

Vancive Medical Technologies™ and DUKAL Corporation today announced an agreement for the distribution of the Vancive BeneHold™ Absorbent Wound Dressing range in the United States and Canada. The BeneHold range includes the Thin Absorbent Wound Dressing, the Standard Hydrocolloid Dressing and the Bordered Hydrocolloid Dressing with Odor Control.

“This agreement between Vancive Medical Technologies and DUKAL Corp. brings together Vancive’s unique technologies and know-how with DUKAL’s specialized sales team,” said Howard Kelly, president and general manager of Vancive. “DUKAL’s products are already used in traditional wound and skin care, and by adding the BeneHold Absorbent Wound Dressing range, they significantly broaden the continuum of care within their product offering.”

The BeneHold Absorbent Wound Dressings manage lightly to moderately exuding chronic and acute wounds. Products in the BeneHold Absorbent Wound Dressing portfolio are constructed of a self-adherent wound contact layer and a smooth, water-resistant polyurethane top film that acts as a barrier to external contaminants and bacteria. The dressings exhibit superior fluid handling capacity, yet are thinner and more conformable to enhance patient comfort.

The Thin Absorbent Dressings are based on Vancive’s proprietary technology, TASA™ (Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive™). At only 0.1mm in thickness, TASA has the capacity to manage fluid in excess of traditional thin hydrocolloids. Furthermore, the dressings are transparent and allow for site visibility up to 7 days. The Bordered Hydrocolloid Dressing with Odor Control is formulated with organic, non-cytotoxic cyclodextrins that capture odor molecules to help increase patient confidence.

“Not only does this new agreement between DUKAL Corp. and Vancive Medical Technologies benefit the two companies through the use of one cohesive operational system and go-to-market strategy, it also extends those efficiencies throughout the healthcare supply system,” said DUKAL President Gerry LoDuca. “This new alliance means our customers can now secure an even greater breadth of products through a single provider.”
