The HemCon ChitoDot®

Haemostatic Bandage

 TRICOL BIOMEDICAL’s HemCon products are made from chitosan, a naturally occurring polysaccharide. Chitosan is positively charged, attracting negatively charged red blood cells and platelets. This ionic interaction creates a supportive, primary seal at the wound site, controlling all degrees of bleeding, independently of the natural clotting cascade. This mechanism creates an effective seal, even in patients on anticoagulation therapy, while also providing antibacterial barrier properties against a wide variety of organisms.

The HemCon ChitoDot®

The Hemcon ChitoDot is a chitosan-based bandage intended for local management of bleeding wounds. Its small size makes it ideal for rapid control of bleeding in patients following haemodialysis, especially for patients on anticoagulation therapy. ChitoDot® also has proven antibacterial barrier properties against a wide range of microorganisms, including antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), and Acinetobacter baumannii.

Product Dimensions: 1,9cm diameter, Latex Free
