BioStat LLC Celox™ Z-Fold Gauze combines the ground breaking Celox™ agent with a fabric dressing to control life threatening blood loss directly at the source of bleeding. Celox™ Z-Fold Gauze is the only fabric dressing available coated with the Celox™ hemostatic agent. The flexible gauze allows for easy and precise placement for wound treatment.
Celox™ is a high performance chitosan-derived hemostatic designed to stop lethal bleeding fast. It is easy to use, extremely effective (clots blood in 30 seconds), and safe. It is FDA 510k approved and is a CE Marked Class III Medical Device.
When placed directly into a bleeding wound and subjected to pressure Celox™ absorbs blood and forms an adhesive gel that seals the wound to stop the flow of blood. Celox™ does not set off the normal clotting cascade. Celox™ also does not set off a blood clotting response which would lead to clots being formed at a distance to the product.
Celox™ does not generate heat and will not burn the casualty or care giver. Celox™ works independently of the body's normal clotting processes and has been proven to work in hypothermic conditions and in the presence of common anticoagulants such as Coumadin and Heparin.
Celox™ is made of chitosan, a compound derived from shrimp exoskeleton (shells). Chitosan has proven antimicrobial properties and is not a procoagulant. Chitosan is broken down and absorbed through normal metabolic pathways resolving to a polysaccharide in the body, basic sugars, glucosamine and N-acetylglucosamine 5. It has an extensive history of use in vascular closure and in human cardiac surgery. Celox™ has a three year history of use in emergency, military, and retail first aid with no reported incidents.
