BloodSTOP® is a natural, biocompatible, non-irritating, animal-free material that adheres to a wound, absorbs blood, stops bleeding, and forms a protective layer to create an environment for wound healing. Its water solubility allows it to be rinsed off without disruption to the clotted surface.
BloodSTOP iX for Surgical Use
Surgical-Grade Absorbent Hemostat
BloodSTOP® iX is a natural, biocompatible, non-irritating, animal-free hemostatic agent which resembles traditional gauze. Using a proprietary formulation, cotton cellulose is etherized and oxidized to make a highly absorbent, hydrophilic, water-soluble, bioresorbable matrix. BloodSTOP® iX is designed for medical use, being highly biocompatible. It can be used in internal surgery in markets that recognize the European Union CE certification* and is market cleared in the US for surface wound hemostasis only. Applications include general surgery, ENT procedures, thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedics and many other surgical and post-surgical procedures.
How it Works
When applied to a wound, BloodSTOP® iX quickly absorbs blood and exudates, transforms into a gel to seal the wound with a protective transparent layer, actively aids in blood coagulation, and creates and environment for wound healing. The clear gel surface facilitates monitoring of hemostasis so the surgeon can focus on the patient, knowing that unwanted bleeding is under control.
BloodSTOP® iX meets all international standard biocompatibility criteria for prolonged-use implant materials. Additionally, experience, gathered over a ten-year period in hospitals and university medical centers outside the U.S., has demonstrated the efficacy of BloodSTOP® iX in time-to-hemostasis, reduced blood loss and material resorption time with no toxicity or other adverse effects.
