What is ChitoClot?

ChitoClot series is made of 100% medical-grade chitosan and provides fast and effective hemostatic effects with various application.

Chitosan Characteristics

Chitosan is nature biodegradable polysaccharides derived from shrimp or crab shell. It is non-toxic and has excellent anti-microbial and hemostatic properties.

From Chitin to Chitosan

Chitosan is a β-1,4-linked polymer of glucosamine (2-amino-2-deoxy-β-D-glucose) and lesser amounts of N-acetylglucosamine. It is a derivative of chitin (poly-N-acetylglucosamine).

Hemostatic Mechanisms

By attracting negatively-charged platelets, chitosan cation (-NH3+) can actively accelerate blood coagulation.

That activates coagulation molecules, thrombin, serotonin, ADP, TxA2, and induces aggregation of fibrin and blood clot.
