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.
BloodSTOP® iX for Emergency Care
Designed for medical professionals and hospitals, for emergency uses.
Made with 100% natural plant components, BloodSTOP® iX is a new generation hemostat, water soluble, oxidized-etherified regenerated cellulose. It is a fully biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrix of fibers.
It adheres to any wound and, upon contact with blood, initiates blood coagulation, stops bleeding in a timely manner, and forms a protective layer of gel that creates an optimal environment for wound healing. Its water solubility allows easy removal through rinsing without disruption of the clotted wound surface. BloodSTOP® iX exerts its pro-coagulant activity by activating the intrinsic coagulation pathway, accelerating clot formation.
It can be used in internal surgery in countries that recognize the European Union Class III CE certification. Its EU Class IIb CE certification for surface wound hemostasis also includes the treatment of patients on anticoagulant medications. In the US, BloodSTOP® iX has currently obtained the FDA 510K market clearance for surface wound hemostasis.
