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.

Efficacy of BloodSTOP® iX, Surgicel, and Gelform in Rat Models of Active Bleeding From Partial Nephrectomy and Aortic Needle Injury
BloodSTOP® iX is safe and efficient in achieveling renal parenchymal hemostasis without hilar or parenchymal clamping in partial nephrectomy rat model. The mean bleeding time was dramatically decreased compared with the use of Surgicel. Similarly, in an aortic injury model, BloodSTOP® iX achieved hemostasis faster than either Gelfoam or Surgicel. Improvement in the handling of the product to prevent adherence to any moist surface could place this oxidized material as the top choice of topical hemostatic matrix for nephron-sparing surgery.
