HaemoCer™ PLUS – Haemostasis and
Adhesion Prevention Barrier ideal to nature
HaemoCer™ PLUS Absorbable Polysaccharide Haemostat (APH) is a proprietary patent pending technology based on BioCers Polysacharide Ultra-hydrophilic Resorbable Engineering (PURE) process.
HaemoCer™ PLUS APH incorporates a sophisticated, plant-based polymer crosslinking that creates ultra-hydrophilic, biocompatible particles.
Once in contact with blood, HaemoCer™ PLUS enhances the natural clotting cascade by rapidly dehydrating the blood and accelerating the concentration of platelets, red blood cells and coagulation proteins at the bleeding site. The second mode of action of HaemoCer™ PLUS is the formation of a robust gelled matrix that adheres to the bleeding site and forms a mechanical barrier to prevent further bleeding.
HaemoCer™ PLUS is rapidly resorbed by amylase within a few days without leaving any residues behind, depending on the amount of used material and the place of application.
The innovative PURE™ Technology
HaemoCer™ PLUS contains no animal nor human components and is rapidly resorbed and degraded by amylase. HaemoCer™ PLUS is indicated for use in surgical procedures or injuries as an adjunct haemostat, when control of bleeding from capillary, venous, or arteriolar vessels by pressure, ligature and other conventional means is either ineffective or impractical. HaemoCer™ PLUS with its patent pending technology is manufactured in Germany and available as well as approved nearly worldwide.

Ease of use, DAPI application technique
Remove excess pooled blood by suction or gauze
Apply HaemoCer™ PLUS immediately and extensively to the wound site
Apply gentle compression over the wound using dry gauze
Irrigate thoroughly prior to gently removing the gauze to ensure the gelled matrix remains at the wound site
Adhesion prevention barrier
Adhesions are scar tissue that can form after inflammations, surgical interventions or tumor diseases. This results in fan- or strand-like adhesions between organs or tissue surfaces in the abdominal cavity that are normally not connected to each other. Adhesions are usually caused by injury to the delicate organ membranes during surgery. Local inflammation also occurs with minute injuries or merely trauma to organs.
To build up the adhesion barrier, the powder is applied generously to the tissue to be protected and then moistened with sterile water or a saline solution. The HaemoCer™ PLUS powder absorbs the liquid and transforms into a protective gel layer. This barrier prevents contact with other tissue during the postoperative healing process.
This adhesion barrier can be created in both open and minimally invasive procedures. For this purpose, we have various HaemoCer™ applicators in our portfolio.
Remove all excess blood by suctioning, wiping or dabbing
Generously apply HaemoCer™ PLUS powder to the entire mesothelial defect and wound surfaces
Moisten the powder with sterile saline solution or sterile water until the powder is completely converted into a gel
