Woundclot gauze, is a single use, sterile and bio-absorbable medical device, made from cellulosic structure, which can be fabricated into a variety of Forms to suit a variety of wounds in the control of bleeding.
- One product solution for different types of bleeding (includes haemorrhage, within minutes)
- Non-Compression application
- Single-use, Sterile & able to absorb 25x its own weight in blood or exudate
- Bioabsorbable within 7 days
- Creates biological hemostasis
- Clean and easy removal, if needed
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Upon application and contact with blood, the product’s molecular structure changes to form a gelatinous membrane, which adheres to the wound creating a mechanical barrier to immediately reduce blood, flow.
Next, platelets from the injury attach to the gauze by inter-molecular forces to form a stable membrane, which is able to withstand severe arterial and venous blood flow for hours.
Specific molecular groups, created in the manufacturing process, are then dispersed during gel formation to activate various coagulation factors in the blood, thus helping to form a physiologically natural fibrin clot in the wound.
After bleeding has stopped, the remaining residual membrane can be irrigated out of the wound safely without pulling on soft tissue or the existing clot.
WoundClot is designed to maintain its integrity through polymeric chains, specifically designed to interact with water molecules to form a physical cross linked network, which is manageable and natural.
ADHERES TO THE WOUND
The ability to adhere to a bleeding wound reduces the amount of pressure needed in order to stop bleeding, thus preventing unnecessary damage the body caused by excessive pressure, or infection caused by prolonged contact with the wound.
Coagulation is a complex chain reaction, where different elements are motivated into action, conditioned from other reactions. The ability to influence these reactions speeds the whole coagulation process.

What Is The Shelf Life Of WoundClot?
Currently, WoundClot® Hemostatic Gauze has a 4-year shelf life.
How Is WoundClot Different From Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose (ORC) Hemostatics?
ORC hemostatics are based on more than 75+ year-old technology. These products have a tendency to stick to gloved hands and instruments, not intended wound surfaces. Some ORCs are FDA Class III surgical implantable products, but their instructions for use indicate they should be removed whenever possible due to the increased risk of infection or adverse reaction. ORCs are not designed to be used if persistent or heavy bleeding is occurring.
WoundClot® is the world’s only NONRCS and is highly absorbent (up to 2,500% its weight in fluid), adheres well to wound surfaces--even in high pressure bleeding--and is actively absorbent for up to 24 hours in the wound. WoundClot® is specifically engineered to effectively manage mild, moderate, and severe bleeding.
What Is WoundClot Made From?
WoundClot® is made from cellulose, a natural fiber product. WoundClot® is the only Non-Oxidized, Non-Regenerated Cellulose Structure (NONRCS) product in world.
Other hemostatics made from cellulose are manufactured utilizing an obsolete method that breaks down cellulose by oxidization, greatly decreasing the product's ability to absorb blood, adhere to wound surfaces, and create an environment that is conducive to achieving hemostasis.
What Is The Active Ingredient In WoundClot?
WoundClot® is made from cellulose, a natural fiber product. WoundClot® is the only NONRCS product in the world. Due to its unique patented manufacturing process, WoundClot® does not require an “active Ingredient.”
The material itself is engineered to be inherently hemostatic. Other hemostatics are made using a synthetic or natural substrate impregnated with an active ingredient like Kaolin, Chitosan, Collagen, Silica, or Thrombin.
How Easily Is WoundClot Removed From Wounds?
WoundClot® is easily removed from a wound by simply removing the clot. Rebleeding will not occur and any remaining gel can be easily irrigated out of the wound.
How Does WoundClot Work?
Unlike any other hemostatic product available today, WoundClot® has multiple mechanisms of action. When WoundClot® contacts blood, it converts into a thick, tenacious, expanding gel, adhering to wound surfaces.
WoundClot® does not require the application of manual pressure to be effective. WoundClot® is highly absorbent and will absorb up to 2,500% its weight in fluid. It also remains actively absorbent for up to 24 hours in the wound. The product is engineered so it will activate two key factors.
Additionally, WoundClot® has a high safety profile, can be used anywhere in or on the body, and requires little to no training to utilize effectively.
