Absorbable hemostatic gelatin sponge, made up of 100% swine jelly. Equispon is made from a modified gelatin foam that gives the final product a uniform pore and reacts neutrally.
Equispon adheres to the bleeding site and absorbs an amount equal to 50 times its weight. Thanks to the uniform Equispon porosity, platelets are captured, clotting cascade is activated and soluble fibrinogen becomes an insoluble fibrin network that stops bleeding. Planted in the tissue, Equispon is absorbed within 3-5 weeks.
- Rapid hemostatic effect (average time 2-4 minutes).
- Fully absorbable
- No tissue damage or hypersensitivity reactions
- Bactericidal effect
