Introducing Microlyte Vet: a new generation of wound technology for optimal wound healing

It is not often that you stumble on a new technology that gives you a new perspective on wound care. With over 10 years of research behind it Microlyte offers a new concept as a ‘leave in’ product that combines the antimicrobial power of ionic silver with a hygroscopic film matrix that supports cell migration. This review covers the key points from the workshop, which introduced the science of Microlyte, its features and benefits and its potential applications illustrated across a range of case studies.

Figure 1. Instead of asking how to ‘treat’ a wound, the group of DVMs, MDs and PhDs at UW-Madison asked, ‘how do we re-engineer the wound bed?’ This change in perspective led to the development of a novel technology: MicroLyte Vet. Jonathan McAnulty, DVM, Chairman of the Department of Surgical Sciences, UW-Madison College of Veterinary Medicine holds a small sample of the product he helped to pioneer.
