“Our commitment is to offer the best solutions for patient healing, and ease of application ensuring efficiency and safety. By combining our local expertise with Bactiguard’s wound care portfolio, I am convinced that we have a winning concept”, says Mr. Antonio Coll Balart, CEO Farmaban S.A.

Farmaban is a privately-owned company, founded in 1992, located in Sant Fruitós de Bages (Barcelona). The company started by producing adhesive elastic bandages and has progressively expanded into manufacturing a wide range of products in wound care management.

Last year Bactiguard entered a partnership with Libera Medica for distribution in Spain of Bactiguard’s infection prevention portfolio, with coated products for urinary tract, blood stream and respiratory tract. By distributing Bactiguard’s wound care portfolio, Farmaban will enable Bactiguard to reach the Spanish market with its full range of products for infection prevention and wound care.

About Bactiguard’s wound care portfolio

Bactiguard wound care is a biocompatible, pH-neutral and water-based product line that supports the natural wound healing and cleans the wound by reducing the microbial load. The products can be used for both acute and chronical wounds.

Bactiguard wound care contains hypochlorous acid, the same substance as the body's immune cells use in their defence against infectious organisms. The products neither smell strongly or sting, but effectively kills most viruses, bacteria and fungi that cause infections, including the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.* The solution has no negative effect on human cells, that means it is not irritating to the body.

*In collaboration with the Swedish National Veterinary Institute (SVA), tests have been conducted with Hydrocyn on a viral culture of the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. The result shows that 99.9% of the virus particles were inactivated – which means, they were no longer functional and thus not contagious.
