100% Chitosan Haemostatic Dressing
Axiostat is a sterile, haemostatic dressing intended to control moderate to severe bleeding within minutes of application by providing an active mechanical barrier to the surgical site.
Axiostat is indicated in surgical procedures as an adjunct to haemostasis when control for bleeding, ranging from oozing to spurting by ligature or conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical.
- Sterile, ready to use
- Hypoallergenic no known side-effects
- Active on all sides
- Easy removal without disruption to the surgical bleeding surface
Axiostat works on the principles of mucoadhesion and charge based adhesion. Axiostat made with 100% chitosan has been designed to be polycationic in nature whereas blood cells are anionic in nature. When blood comes in contact with Axiostat, this charge based adhesion results in the formation of a strong platelet plug that acts as a mechanical barrier preventing blood from leaking out.
Based on patented, clinically validated a.c.t (Axio clotting technology)
