QuikClot® Haemostatic Devices

Innovation in haemostasis

QuikClot® haemostatic devices are different from standard surgical gauzes and other haemostatic agents. They stop bleeding significantly faster and are more effective than standard gauzes1,2 and they are just as safe and intuitive to use.11

Unlike other haemostatics, QuikClot® devices are impregnated with kaolin, an inorganic mineral that accelerates the body’s natural clotting ability1,4 and produces no exothermic reaction. You or your team can achieve haemostasis confidently—without worry of instigating an allergic response.1,4

QuikClot® devices do not contain:

  • Animal proteins
  • Human proteins
  • Shellfish
  • Botanicals

How does QuikClot® work?

QuikClot® kaolin technology accelerates the body’s natural clotting cascade2

For more than 8 years, QuikClot® haemostatic devices have been made with kaolin. Kaolin works on contact with blood to immediately initiate the clotting process by activating factor XII.4 This reaction leads to the transformation of factor XII to its activated form XIIa, which instigates the rest of the coagulation cascade.13
