CELOX is an effective high-performance hemostatic material. It is a
proprietary marine biopolymer chitosan designed to stop high-volume
arterial bleeding. CELOX hemostatic can be used for various
applications from deep arterial bleeds to superficial wounds.
CELOX’s unusual properties have been confirmed in wound
models, where they have repeatedly demonstrated the ability to rapidly
control major arterial bleeding (without cautery) from traumatic
wounds. The granular presentation provides a simple, quick and
effective way to stop bleeding and is particularly useful in treating
difficult and deep wounds. A clot forms at the site of the injured
blood vessel within minutes after pouring the product into the wound.
Excess granules form a gelled mass to protect the clot. The gelled
material is easy to remove.
No Known Side Effects
CELOX hemostatic does not generate any heat nor does it embed itself
into the wound. CELOX is derived from shellfish but it does not cause
Works on All Blood
CELOX works whether blood temperature is 98.7°F
(37.05°C) or 65.4 F (18.5 °C).
Works on Heparinized Blood
CELOX hemostatic works on heparinized blood because it works
independently of blood clotting factors.
Easy to Administer
CELOX granules are lightweight, packaged in sterilized, sealed packets
that are easy and fast to open. CELOX is to be poured into the wound
and held down with gauze for 5 minutes. A compression bandage is then
wrapped over the gauze covered wound and patient can be transported.
