OTC WoundClot™ is a bio-absorbable hemostat that is approved for bleeding treatment. It is a cellulose-based product designed with an entirely new molecular structure. The product is produced with a unique non-oxidized manufacturing process allowing the gel formation and expansion of the product upon the absorption of blood. Upon the placement of WoundClot™ dressing on the bleeding site, the products unique gel harnesses the hydration forces between the mucosal layer and itself which results in a strong physical attraction that leads to the adherence of the product to the tissue. In contact with liquids WoundClot™ forms an absorbent gel which adheres to the wound surface to control bleeding. Intended to be used as a topical for minor skin surface bleeding wounds such as minor cuts or minor abrasions. The product can absorb up to 2,500% of its own weight without separating or dissolving for an extended period of time. This unique gel structure, along with its new molecular design, harnesses applied physics, biology, physiology, and chemistry to achieve all these properties.
