HaemoCer is an Absorbable Polysaccharide Haemostat (APH) and it has been created
using BioCer’s Polysaccharide Ultra-hydrophilic Resorbable Engineering (PURE) process.
HaemoCer™ APH incorporates a sophisticated, plant-based polymer crosslinking that
creates ultra-hydrophilic, biocompatible particles.
Upon contact with blood HaemoCer™ enhances the natural clotting cascade by rapidly
dehydrating the blood and accelerating the concentration of platelets, red blood
cells and coagulation proteins at the bleeding site.
HaemoCer™ also rapidly produces a gelled matrix that adheres to and forms a mechanical
barrier with the bleeding tissue. HaemoCer™ contains no animal or human components
and is rapidly reabsorbed by the body. It is fully CE Approved and is made in Germany
to very high standards of purity
Safety - contains no animal or human components, utilising a purified plant source
material is critical to minimising the risks of infection and bleeding-related complications
during surgery. Rapidly resorbed and irrigated with saline rinse.
Efficacy –Rapid Dual action mechanism. Ultra-hydrophilic nature enhances and accelerates
the clotting cascade, coupled with the formation of a gelled matrix, which forms
a mechanical barrier to bleeding.
Ease of Use– No Prep or special storage requirements. Off-the-shelf deployment.
Diverse range of applications– suitable for a broad range of surgical procedures
including (but not limited to) abdominal, cardiac, ENT, general, gynaecology, hepatic,
orthopaedic, thoracic, transplant, urology, neurology and vascular
Rapid acting, safe and easy to use - dehydrates blood and forms a gel matrix barrier
over the bleeding site. Reabsorbed within 48 hours
Remove all excess blood from the site of the bleeding
Immediately apply a liberal amount of HaemoCer directly to the source of the bleeding
Apply appropriate pressure over the wound by using a dry gauze
Before removing the gauze, irrigation is recommended to dissolve adhesions to the
Designed for laparoscopic / MIS procedures – the 440mm long, flexible applicator
just push fits on to the existing HaemoCer dispenser enabling easy application of
the powder in any restricted access procedure. Also ideal for deploying HaemoCer
during open procedures into deeper cavities.
Now Available - HaemoCer Plus
Even faster acting and more absorbent than original HaemoCer - and significantly
more effective than any other competitor’s powder.
Watch the video opposite to see how HaemoCer Plus (on the right ) outperforms other
polysaccharide haemostats - it absorbs twice as much liquid and creates a gel whilst
the other powders have yet to act.
