BloodSTOP® iX is a new generation advanced wound care product. It is all natural, plant-based, 100% purified, water soluble, etherified sodium carboxymethyl cellulose matrix that utilizes proprietary technology to achieve fast bleeding control and wound healing. At the wound interface, in the presence of liquid from blood, exudate, or other sources, the matrix quickly turns into a transparent sticky gel. The gel forms a biocompatible, non-irritating barrier, to seal and protect the wound from contamination, and activates the intrinsic coagulation pathway, thus accelerating clot formation.
BloodSTOP® iX has both European Union Class II & III CE Mark Certifications for absorbable implant and topical wound use, including patients on anticoagulant medications. BloodSTOP® iX currently has US Market Clearance for topical wound hemostasis.

It has an unsurpassed ability to absorb bleeding and achieves hemostasis almost immediately. It becomes a thick gel within 15 seconds, filling up the void after a tooth is extracted and staying in the socket without placing sutures. This is especially useful for patients who cannot bite down.
It is flexible, lightweight, easily cut or folded, and conforms to irregular wound areas. It has resulted in fewer side effects (such as dry socket) for our patients, thereby saving chair time, post-op visits and overall costs.”
“I have used BloodSTOP® iX in dental extractions where bleeding control was difficult. It costs less than half the price of other products…and it totally dissolves in water so I don’t have to worry about a foreign body being left in the surgical area.”
