BioFilm aims to be at the forefront of new developments in the global wound care market. Our range of film technologies is well suited to the manufacture of advanced wound care and haemostasis applications designed to aid the healing process. These novel films can be specifically developed for use in a number of wound conditions from minor First Aid situations through to complex surgical procedures.
BioFilm’s expertise lies in developing new and effective film products capable of delivering the desired level of active ingredient directly to the wound site.
