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.


Surface Bleeding in Catheterization Labs and Interventional Radiology

BloodSTOP® iX may be used as other topical dressings are used: an adjunct to manual pressure for surface bleeding control in sheath pulls. The features of BloodSTOP® iX make it uniquely suited to this application:

•       Begins working on 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 

•       Significantly more cost effective than competitors




BloodSTOP® iX is intended for emergeny and therapeutic use in the control of bleeding from the skin and other surface wounds where temporary control of bleeding is required.  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.”
