HaemoCer Plus Polysaccharide Powder
OPTIONAL UNIVERSAL APPLICATOR
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.
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 gauze
Remove excess HaemoCer powder by irrigation
How it works
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
HaemoCer Plus is 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 - and note that there is twice as much liquid in the HaemoCer Plus glass as well!

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
