BloodSTOP® and BloodSTOP® iX are biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrices of fibers made from natural plant compounds. They adhere to a wound, initiate blood coagulation, stop bleeding, and form a protective layer to create an optimal environment for wound healing. Their water solubility allows for removal by rinsing, without disruption of a clotted surface.
These products are covered by U.S. Patent No. 7,262,181.
Wound Care Applications
A New Alternative
For many years, the control of bleeding in wound care has been a challenge to both the physician and the patient. Traditional dressings and adhesive bandages have been slow-acting, often requiring the application of pressure to the wound site for extended periods of time. When dressings have to be changed, these products tend to disturb the clot and cause recurrent bleeding as well as patient discomfort.
LifeScience PLUS developed a new technology for hemostasis to overcome these challenges. This technology led to the development of BloodSTOP® and BloodSTOP® iX, advanced wound care products designed for safe, effective, and palliative care of bleeding wounds. Their natural composition of biocompatible, water-soluble cellulose makes BloodSTOP® products an efficient and cost-effective alternative for wound healing.
