What is FASTCLOT®?
FASTCLOT® is a unique therapeutic platform technology. In its first application, SURGICLOT®, supplemental clot-forming proteins are dispersed on a bleeding injury site.
On contact with a liquid such as blood, the nano-fiber dextran dressing releases its designed treatment package to the patient. In the SURGICLOT® application, the lyophilized, purified, fibrin-producing human proteins, thrombin and fibrinogen, act. The clotting cascade is augmented, rapidly forming a fibrin clot.
The fibrin clot is robust, reliable and translucent, making the SURGICLOT® dressing cost-effective. The dextran dissolves rapidly and can safely be left in the body to be fully absorbed. No swelling occurs. No foreign residuals remain at the injury site. Hemostasis is rapidly achieved. FASTCLOT® technology is ideal for stopping bleeding in many surgery and trauma situations.
We believe that SURGICLOT® will become the standard of care for treating orthopaedic surgical bleeding.
Our first focus is treating cancellous bone bleeding during orthopaedic surgery. Once CE Mark is achieved, it will be the only hemostatic dressing approved for cancellous bone bleeding during surgery that can be left in the body.Additional Applications
Research & Technology
FASTCLOT® technology performance has been explored in a broad range of hemostasis applications.
19 pre-clinical studies have focused in three basic medical areas: (1) spine and orthopaedic procedures; (2) control of high-volume arterial/venous bleeding; and (3) soft tissue / liver & spleen coagulation.Read The Research
