Collagen Pellets

Collagen Pellets

Rx only, indicated for the treatment of wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers


Maiden Biosciences Collagen Pellets are an absorbent topical dressing made of a matrix of micro fibrilar collagen, indicated for the management of moderate to severe exudating wounds, and for the control of minor hemorrhaging.

Collagen Pellets help to create a favorable physiological environment to support wound healing. Importantly, when the pellets interact with the wound fluid, it begins to absorb the exudate.  When exudate is not managed within a wound site its presence may negatively impact the ability to heal.

Collagen Pellets are applied directly to the wound, protecting the wound bed and the new delicate tissue.

In addition, Collagen Pellets are derived from micro fibrils of collagen, an excellent topical application for wounds located in areas where constant range of motion may impact the ability for collagen sheets to remain intact, or for wounds located in places difficult to reach or awkward to place a sheet topical dressing.

To preserve these properties, it is important to preserve the structural and functional characteristics of collagen.  Certain products that are on the market, such as denatured collagen or hydrolyzate, have their original molecular structure altered.  Collagen Pellets are made with an absorbent micro fibrillary collagen formulation, which assists a favorable physiological environment for wound healing.

How are Collagen Pellets applied to wounds?

Collagen Pellets are versatile, as they can be applied to wounds that are irregularly shaped or difficult to access, where it is difficult to obtain adequate contact with the surface to absorb exudate from the wound.

To absorb the exudate from a wound, the contents of a pouch are sprinkled over the wound area.  The wound can then be covered with secondary dressing.

                          Net Weight: 1g: (0.03 oz)

1. Cleanse and rinse the wound.
2. Apply topical medication to the wound, if indicated.
3. Apply the collagen pellets topical dressing to the surface of the wound in a layer of approximately 1/4 inch.  Do not wrap the wound too tightly, which may prevent the collagen fibrils of the dressing from expanding.
Maiden Biosciences topical collagen dressings can be changed daily, according to the amount of drainage from the wound, and the instructions for use.  After removing the secondary dressing, repeat the steps included in “Product Application” as necessary.
This product is not recommended for patients who are allergic to materials derived from bovine animals (e.g., milk, meat or leather).
