Gelatin Sponge Strip

Absorbable Haemostatic Gelatin Sponge is a medical device intended for application to
bleeding surfaces as a haemostatic agent. It is a water-insoluble, off-white, nonelastic,
porous, pliable product prepared from bovine bone, Gelatin USP Granules and Water for
Injection, USP. It may be cut without fraying and is able to absorb and hold within its
interstices many times its weight of blood and other fluids.

Absorbable Hemostatic Gelatin Sponge is a quick and effective hemostatic which stops
bleeding fast. It reduces intra operative bleeding and surgery time.

It is non-toxic, non-allergenic, non-immunogenic, and non- pyrogenic. It is already
gamma-sterilized, and thus does not need to be resterilized. It is available in a
convenient, ready to tear sterile blister/envelope, unlike many haemostatic agents, does
not require special storage conditions. The uniform porosity of sponge guarantees a
favorable haemostasis. It absorbs approximately 40 to 50 times its weight of blood and
adheres easily to the bleeding site. When implanted in body, it is completely absorbed
within 3-4 weeks, with no residue and no encapsulation.
