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.


Catheterization Labs and Interventional Radiology

BloodSTOP® iX reduces hold times when used as an adjunct to manual pressure for topical bleeding control in sheath pulls.  The features of BloodSTOP® iX make it uniquely suited to this application:

       Activates in seconds by contact with blood, transforming to a gel to form a seal over the wound

       Conforms to all wound surfaces

       Easy to cut, fold or layer 

       Retains sealant capacity during patient movement

       Can be reactivated with direct pressure if re-bleed occurs away from the lab

       Requires no straps or additional pressure devices

       Significantly more cost effective than competitors




BloodSTOP® iX is intended for the control of surface bleeding at vascular access sites in cases where hemostasis by clotting is indicated.  It is not intended as a substitute for the appropriate use of vascular closure devices when such devices are indicated.



“Over the years I have used many topical hemostatic pads and BloodSTOP® iX is the most effective at reducing hold times that I have found.  It is versatile and as a single package solution for most routine applications, economical enough to use.  Long Beach Memorial Hospital has a very busy Interventional Radiology Lab and the time saved with BloodSTOP® iX is important in maintaining the flow of our daily schedule and the quality of our patient care.”
