Celox Hemostatic Granules by BioStat LLC stop bleeding fast, including blood containing heparin, coumadin or warfarin. Apply absorbent granules directly to the bleeding wound and apply pressure for about 30 seconds. On contact, Celox binds to the surface of red blood cells to form a gel-like plug and stops bleeding in smaller wounds within seconds and controls mild to potentially life-threatening arterial bleeding within minutes.
Celox is fast, effective first aid for minor cuts, severe punctures or deep wounds. Blood stop function compares to BleedArrest, QuickClot, and WoundSeal.
Celox is made of chitosan, a derivative of chitin which is extracted from shrimp shells and has proven antimicrobial properties. Celox Hemostatic Granules do not generate heat or cause a burning sensation, and do not stimulate the body’s own clotting process. Celox is effective in hypothermic conditions and is easily irrigated from wounds when the patient presents for further medical treatment.
Celox products come in sterile, waterproof packaging in multiple sizes and quantity designed for use by EMS professionals as well as people with basic first aid skills.
One individual 2-gram pouch.
