Celox Hemostatic Granules by BioStat LLC stop bleeding fast, including blood containing heparin, coumadin or warfarin. Apply absorbent granules directly to the 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 small wounds within seconds. Controls mild to potentially life-threatening arterial bleeding within minutes.
Celox is fast, effective first aid in any type of bleeding incident ranging from minor cuts, severe punctures or other 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 blood clotting process. Granules are effective in hypothermic conditions and are easily irrigated from wounds when the patient presents for further medical treatment.
Celox Hemostatic Granules come in sterile, waterproof packaging in multiple sizes and quantity designed for use by EMS professionals and people with basic first aid skills. Package contains 10 foil pouches of 2 grams each.
