New sterile medical-grade Manuka Honey products launch at NAVC Conference.

IRVINE, Calif., Jan 09, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Links Medical Products Inc. (LMP) announced they will present their new medical-grade Manuka honey dressings, for use in advanced veterinary wound care, at the 2012 NAVC veterinary conference in Orlando, FL.

Made with 100% active medical-grade Manuka honey, the products provide veterinarians with dressings to help manage and treat animal wounds and burns and to speed healing.

Extensive research demonstrates medical-grade Manuka honey offers bacteriostatic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to promote accelerated wound healing. And the high osmotic activity of Manuka honey maintains a moist wound healing environment and helps clean and debride wounds while controlling malodors*...

"Our products are made with 100% active medical-grade Manuka honey, never a mix of honey," states Tom Buckley, Links Medical's CEO. "It's harvested exclusively from hives dedicated to bees that pollinate the Manuka bush (a species known as Leptospermum scoparium) native only to New Zealand."

Great care is taken to ensure the new LMP wound care products meet the highest standard of purity and bioactivity. LMP's brand of medical-grade Manuka honey is finely filtered to remove all processing particles and sterilized by gamma irradiation to eliminate bacteria, microorganisms, and spores. Gamma irradiation assures the honey retains its biologic activity.
