PETALUMA, Calif., Jan. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oculus Innovative Sciences,
Inc. (Nasdaq:OCLS), a global healthcare company that designs, manufactures and
markets prescription and non-prescription products in 31 countries, today
introduced two new products to its U.S. family of Microcyn®-based advanced
wound care products.
An innovative advance in hypochlorous acid hydrogel technology, Microcyn®
Wound & Skin Spray HydroGel is now available in a spray formulation, allowing
it to be easily and conveniently sprayed directly onto the wound site.
Available in a three-ounce spray bottle, this newest advance in hydrogel
technology is reimbursable via HCPCS #A6248.
The second product is the proven and easy-to-use Microcyn® Wound & Skin Care
with preservatives, which is now available for the first time in a multi-use
two-ounce spray bottle. Used to cleanse, irrigate and aid in the debridement
of a vast array of chronic and acute wounds, Microcyn® can be used prior to a
variety of wound healing products and methods including products with silver,
enzymatic debriders, growth factors, tissue-engineered products and dermal
substitutes.The reduced bottle size allows it to be used both in the clinic,
as well as economically dispensed or prescribed for patients' in-home use.
"I've integrated the original Microcyn advanced wound care products quite
successfully into my practice for years," said Dr. Tom Wolvos, Arizona surgeon
and author of the Scottsdale Wound Management Guide. "This latest advance,
with a unique hydrogel formulation that can actually be sprayed on the wound,
is truly innovative and welcomed.It allows the hydrogel to be easily and
comprehensively applied to a wound site.And the economy-sized Microcyn
solution is ideal for patients to use at home with far less impact on their
Microcyn Technology is a powerful solution that provides an optimal wound
healing environment.It does not contain antibiotics, and as a result,
evidence to date indicates it does not promote antibiotic-resistance in
bacteria.Helping reduce wound odor via the removal of necrotic tissue,
Microcyn also assists in the physical removal of biofilm, a major deterrent in
wound healing.Other offerings in the Microcyn family of products include an
irrigation solution and a negative-pressure wound therapy solution available
in pharmasling® bottles.
These two newest Microcyn-based products are in stock and now available to
healthcare professionals. For more information, pricing or ordering visit
