Blood Coagulation Mechanism of Chitosan

With chitosan cation (-NH3+), our product can actively accelerate blood coagulation by attracting negatively-charged platelets to form a loose clot. When platelets aggregate, they activate coagulation molecules (thrombin, serotonin, ADP, TxA2) that accelerate the aggregation of fibrin and red blood cells to form a coherent blood clot in plugging the injured blood vessel.

Z-fold Design

AnsCare ChitoClot Gauze is very easy to apply since the gauze is in a z-fold format, which makes packing wounds easier and speeds up application time. It is flexible and pliable to all wounds.
