ChitoHem is a hemostatic, sterile oxidized regenerated cellulosic powder with broad antibacterial profile.It prevents postoperative adhesion and absorbs in the body within 7 hours to 3 days. It is suitable for all types of bleedings including arterial, venous, capillary and oozing within 40-90 seconds.

Due to the superabsorbent nature of this powder, when applied to the puncture site, following the removal of the catheter the serum of the jetting blood is absorbed by the powder. As a result the rate of blood flow from the puncture site is reduced which in return accelerates the initiation of clot formation. The application of ChitoHem hemostatic powder on the patients has reduced the time to hemostasis significantly compared to the conventional manual compression1.ChitoHem is shown to provide a strong antibacterial barrier against a broad spectrum of gram-positive, gram-negative, aerobic, anaerobic and antibiotic resistant bacteria including:


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

Penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae (PRSP)

Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE)

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE)

Staphylococcus aureus

Streptococcus pyogenes Group A

Escherichia coli


Klebsiella pneumonia

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Proteus mirabilis

Pain improvement and both physicians and patients’ satisfaction in ChitoHem users in general surgeries were significantly higher. The use of ChitoHem hemostatic powder is a non-invasive, convenient and repeatable and significantly pain free method2.
ChitoHem has a special applicator. The applicator is an effective powder delivery system capable of delivering a controlled amount of hemostatic powder accurately at the bleeding site during laparoscopic surgery and other out of reach of areas3.

  ChitoHem is a powerful hemostatic powder due to its microporous polysaccharide structures 


Swelling ratio= 5-6 time of its initial weight

Size distribution= 40-60 μm

    Cardiovascular, orthopedic, graft, ENT surgeries and Laparoscopy
    Soft tissue surgery
    Stop bleeding in diabetic patients 
    Suitable for all patients with coagulopathy disorder
   Capillary, venous and arterial bleeding



Since ChitoHem will swell and could exert slight pressure, it must be removed after hemostasis in neurosurgery, bony tissues and the spinal cord surgeries.

For avoiding interference with bone cell formation and incresing the risk of cyst formation, avoid using ChitoHem for implantation in bone defects, such as fractures.

Do not inject ChitoHem into blood vessel.



Although ChitoHem is an antibacterial hemostatic agent, it is not intended to be used as a substitute for systemically administered therapeutic prophylactic antimicrobial agents to control or to prevent postoperative infections.
