Next generation haemostasis modality
Hemospray is a proprietary mineral blend powder developed specifically for endoscopic haemostasis. It contains no human or animal proteins or botanicals and has no known allergens. Hemospray is metabolically inert and deemed nontoxic, systemically or otherwise. Over the years, similar materials have been used by the military for topical battlefield haemostasis applications.

How It Works
When Hemospray comes in contact with an actively bleeding site, the powder absorbs water, then acts both cohesively and adhesively, forming a mechanical barrier over the bleeding site.
Hemospray, unlike traditional therapies, is a nonthermal, nontraumatic, noncontact modality that doesn’t require the precise targeting of other endoscopic devices.
|No tissue changes occur as sometimes experienced with thermal modalities.||Since no force is applied at the treatment site, the powder minimizes the risk of tissue trauma as experienced with other modalities.|
|Aerosol delivery system eliminates the need for direct mechanical or contact forces with the treatment site.||Powder is sprayed toward the source of the bleed, so it does not require the en face approach and accuracy needed for conventional modalities.|
Used for haemostasis of nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
