100% Chitosan Haemostatic Dressing
Control Dental Bleeding with Chitosan Haemostatic Dressing
Axiostat is a sterile, non-absorbable haemostatic dressing intended to control profuse bleeding within minutes of application by providing an active mechanical barrier to the wound site.
Often difficult to reach, dental bleeding can quickly become uncontrolled and unmanageable. The dental variant is designed to optimally fit into the bleeding cavity. Axiostat controls bleeding during dental extractions, dental surgeries and other oral procedures.
Axiostat works on a principle of adhesion due to charge. It has been designed to be positively charged and blood cells carry a net negative charge. When blood comes in contact with Axiostat, oppositely charged components are attracted and form bonds. This results in a strong adhesive seal that acts as a mechanical barrier preventing blood from leaking out.
- Sterile, ready to use
- Works on oral mucosal tissue wounds
- Active on all sides
Based on patented, clinically validated a.c.t (Axio clotting technology)
