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 for Consumers
BloodSTOP® products are a must for household medicine cabinets and first aid kits in daycare centers and schools everywhere. When a family member is injured, suffers a nosebleed, or has a challenging bleeding situation, the ability to control bleeding is critical. BloodSTOP is a new approach to wound care with important advantages for parents, school personnel and other care-givers.
Fast-acting and effective
When BloodSTOP comes in contact with blood, it forms a clear gel that seals the wound with a protective transparent layer, stops bleeding fast, and creates an environment for wound healing.
Made of natural plant cellulose, BloodSTOP looks and feels like gauze, but it's more. BloodSTOP is biocompatible and, unlike common adhesive bandages, non-irritating to the skin. BloodSTOP rinses off easily and painlessly with water, without disturbing the wound.
Easy to use
BloodSTOP products come stored in sealed packets and ready for immediate use. Convenient strips can easily be cut to fit a wound, packed in a nostril in the case of a nosebleed, or layered for larger cuts or scrapes.

"My wife cut her finger with an exacto knife. It was a full 1 inch long and 1/4 inch deep This product proved to be exceptional. It was extremely easy to open and apply. In seconds, the pad sealed the cut. It was flexible and did not break off either."
