SuperClot® | Surgical hemostasis within seconds
SuperClot® Absorbable Polysaccharide Hemostat (SuperClot®) is a medical device composed of absorbable modified polymer (AMP®) particles and delivery applicator. AMP® particles are biocompatible, non-pyrogenic and derived from purified plant starch. The device contains no human or animal components. SuperClot® is intended as an absorbable hemostatic system to control bleeding during surgical procedures or following traumatic injuries.
AMP® particles have a molecular structure that rapidly absorbs water from the blood. This dehydration process causes a high concentration of platelets, red blood cells, and coagulation proteins (thrombin, fibrinogen, etc.) which accelerates the normal, physiologic clotting cascade. In contact with blood, AMP® particles support the formation of a gelled, adhesive matrix which provides a mechanical barrier to further control bleeding. Absorption occurs within a few days as AMP® particles are degraded by amylase and glucoamylase.
Absorbs water from blood within seconds.
Adhesive gel helps seal and protect the wound.
No animal or human components.
Absorbed in the body naturally within a few days.
Saves hospital money.
