  • Hydrofera CLASSIC

    Hydrofera Blue’s flagship antibacterial foam dressing improves epithelialization while wicking exudate and debris from the wound bed. The result is a multifaceted, non-toxic healing environment that kills bacteria and reduces bioburden.
  • Hydrofera READY

    An antibacterial foam dressing that maintains a moist wound environment without the need for hydration and has a wear time of up to seven days, requiring less dressing changes.
  • Hydrafera TRANSFER

    Hydrafera TRANSFER is an antibacterial foam dressing that helps support wounds with higher exudate (fluid emitting), managing absorption of the secretions while maintaining a moist wound bed.
  • Hydrofera READY BORDER

    Hydrofera Blue Ready-Border dressings provide the perfect option for atraumatic dressing changes. Using a gentle easy-on/easy-off silicone adhesive border, the dressing allows intimate contact of its non-cytotoxic antibacterial foam to the wound bed.

Hydrofera is changing the way we think conventional wound dressings work. From onset to outcome, the Hydrofera Blue® suite of antibacterial foam wound dressings powerfully tackles any type of chronic or non-healing wound. Hydrofera Blue delivers an advanced line of wound care products designed to shorten healing times, lower treatment costs, and deliver better patient outcomes.

Please refer to your health care professional to ensure these products are suitable for you.

Wounds heal faster at less cost

In a recent retrospective study examining wound treatment data of more than 30,000 patients over a two-year period, Hydrofera Blue dressings combined with an Advanced Wound Management Program showed faster healing times and lower treatment costs.

  • Compared with other advanced wound dressings, Hydrofera Blue showed a 7-day reduction in healing time and a 24% reduction in nursing labour cost.

  • Compared with other commonly used dressings on patients who were not on an Advanced Wound Management Program, Hydrofera Blue delivered over a 50% reduction in healing time and a 75% reduction in nursing labour cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean if I see white spots on the dressing when I check it at 24 hours?

The bacterial load in those areas is very high and the dressing should be changed.

Do I have to hydrate Hydrofera Blue Classic if I have a heavily exudating wound?

Yes. Hydrate with Sterile water or Saline. The consistency of wound exudate may be too thick and may not allow the pores in the foam to completely open.

Do I have to hydrate Hydrofera Blue Ready or Transfer?


Hydrofera Blue Classic is always dry when I go to change the dressing. Is this normal?

No. In order to prevent this situation, please re-evaluate your cover dressing. If you have a highly draining wound, the cover dressing should be absorptive. If you have a dry wound and need to add moisture, the cover dressing should be occlusive.
