hemostatic Control Granules
Temporary Traumatic Wound Treatment
CELOX is a high-performance
hemostatic agent. It is a proprietary marine biopolymer designed to stop
high-volume arterial bleeding. CELOX is suitable for many applications, from
deep arterial bleeds to superficial wounds....
CELOX™ is a high performance Chitosan-derived hemostatic designed
to stop lethal bleeding fast. It is easy to use, extremely effective (clots
blood in 30 seconds), and safe (is a CE Marked Class III Medical Device).
When mixed with blood, CELOX™ forms a robust gel like clot in 30
seconds. It works independently of the bodies normal clotting processes. Its clotting ability has
been proven to work in hypothermic conditions and in the presence of common
anticoagulants such as Coumadin and Heparin. It also
generate heat and will not burn the casualty or care giver.
HOW IT WORKS
When placed directly into a bleeding wound and subjected to pressure, the
positively charged CELOX granules cross-link with negatively charged red blood
cells, forming a sticky pseudo clot that blocks blood flow. This clot sticks
well to moist tissue to plug the bleeding site. CELOX does not set off the
normal clotting cascade, it only clots the blood it comes directly into contact
with. CELOX also does not set off a blood clotting response which would lead to
clots being formed at a distance to the product.
CELOX Granules is easy to use:
Just rip open a packet,
pour the granules into the
apply bandaging material and
apply direct pressure and the bleeding stops
For larger wounds, use of more than one packet may be necessary.

Order Form Information
Testing In clinical tests by the US marines, CELOX™ was the only product to give
100% survival. It gave a strong stable MAP (mean arterial blood pressure) and
was also the only product to give robust clotting with no re-bleeding.
CELOX’s™ safety has been tested to the intense class 3 CE mark standards.
CELOX™ is made with Chitosan. Chitosan is broken down by lysozyme, a human
enzyme, to leave glucosamine, a sugar which is normally found in the body.
CELOX™ does NOT use non degrading procoagulant minerals or nano particles
such as smectitie or kaolin, which will remain in the body indefinitely unless
Controls Major Arterial Bleeding
CELOX’s unusual properties have been confirmed in wound models, where they have
repeatedly demonstrated the ability to rapidly control major arterial bleeding
(without cautery) from traumatic wounds. The granular presentation provides a
simple, quick way to stop bleeding and is particularly useful in treating
difficult and deep wounds. A clot forms at the site of the injured blood vessel
within minutes after pouring the product into the wound. Excess granules form a
gelled mass to protect the clot. The gelled material is easy to remove.
No Known Side Effects
CELOX does not generate any heat, produce burning, nor does it embed itself into
the wound. Even though CELOX is derived from shellfish, it does not cause
Works on All Blood Temperatures
CELOX works whether blood temperature is 98.7°F (37.05°C) or 65.4 F (18.5 °C).
Works on Heparinized Blood
CELOX works on heparinized blood because it works independently of the blood
Lightweight, Portable, Easy to Administer
CELOX granules are lightweight, packaged in sterilized, sealed packets which are
easy and fast to open. CELOX is poured into the wound and held down with gauze
for 5 minutes. A compression bandage is then wrapped over the gauze covered
wound and patient is transported.
