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 and BloodSTOP iX for Veterinary Practice
BloodSTOP hemostatic products are safe and effective for wound care for all the large and small animals that a veterinarian is likely to encounter. BloodSTOP and BloodSTOP iX may be used to stop bleeding in cases of minor lacerations or more significant wound trauma.
BloodSTOP hemostats can be administered for household pets, and by farmers and ranchers to treat cuts, lacerations, and wounds on livestock and horses they may depend on for both operations and revenue generation. Law enforcement agencies with mounted police, who often take their horses into emergency public safety situations, can make use of BloodSTOP products in case of sudden injury to stop bleeding and help prevent blood loss.
BloodSTOP and BloodSTOP iX interact with blood to form a clear gel that stops the bleeding and seals the wound for improved healing, even in the presence of animal fur or hair in the wound area.
For veterinary dental treatment, BloodSTOP products can be cut or formed to fit the individual animal.
