CELOX hemostatic granules, made from Chitosan, are very high surface-area flakes that absorb fluid from the blood. CELOX swells, gels, and sticks together to form a robust "pseudo clot". This adhesive-like action seals the wound and rapidly controls bleeding. CELOX does not initiate or interfere with the body's normal clotting cascade. Celox granules are sterile, single-use packets that are small, flat, lightweight and easy to store and carry.
Celox is easy to use. Just pour, pack, cover, and press. Pour onto/into the wound, covering entire bleeding area. Pack cavity or laceration with granules. Cover area with regular gauze. Press/compress the affected area to disseminate CELOX. CELOX 2g granule packs are great for fingertip cuts, or any minor lacerations. Celox’s™ unique, patented and natural formula, works independently of the body’s normal clotting mechanisms to clot blood even where normal clotting is slow. A great product for individuals taking blood thinning medications, individuals with bleeding disorders, and anyone who may encounter hypothermic bleeding. This product is FDA approved as an OTC medical device.
