Technique Tips


A hydrocolloid ostomy barrier ring applied to the base of the Isolator Strip can be helpful in obtaining a good seal.

When using the Isolator Strip to form a linear barrier, apply segments of hydrocolloid ring along the bulb seal on the base of the device and also along the ends.


Ostomy stoma paste can also be applied along the Isolator Strip base and along the ends to help obtain a seal.
