BloodSTOP® iX is a next generation advanced hemostatic and wound healing matrix made from water soluble, etherified sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. It is used by medical professionals and hospitals. It is a fully biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrix of natural cellulose. It absorbs blood and exudates, transforms into a gel and adheres to any wound and, upon contact with blood, initiates blood coagulation, stops bleeding fast, and forms a protective layer that creates an autologous moist wound healing environment.

BloodSTOP® iX has both European Union Class II & III CE Mark Certifications for absorbable implant and topical wound use, including patients on anticoagulant medications. It currently has US Market Clearance for topical wound hemostasis.

Faster and Cost-Effective in Burn Surgery



1. TBSA: Total body surface area; DPT: Deep partial thickness; FT: Full thickness

2. Traditional tareatment usually consists of: petroleum dressing for donor site healing; epi-soaked collagen & silica based compression dressing, suture ligation, and electrocautery for hemostasis of DPT/FT burn; dermal substitutes, silver products, and anti-microbials for healing of DPT/FT burn.

(B) Dressing takedown 7 days post intervention, healed

Burn Cases

Immediate Hemostasis with BloodSTOP® iX

Re-healing of donor site at 7 days from 2nd operation

100% Graft Uptake on Day 7

A Novel Approach to Maintain Hemostasis and Achieve Improved Wound Healing

BloodSTOP® iX was placed over the entire wound followed by a layer of non-adherent dressing and then the left forearm was placed into a wound VAC. Upon takedown of the entire dressing on postoperative day five, it was noted that the patient’s wounds were completely epithelialized and his wound care was transitioned to lotion.
