Okcel H-T is a textile material made from long, natural staple cotton. This knitted version of the absorbable haemostatic material is of standard density. It is used to control capillary bleeding, as well as bleeding from smaller veins and arterioles during surgery and minimally invasive procedures
Okcel H-D is a knitted textile version of the absorbable haemostatic material that is thicker, denser and more effective. It is suitable for stopping and controlling the diffusion of higher volumes of blood and bleeding from veins and arterioles during surgical procedures when it is not possible to use ligation or other conventional methods to stop bleeding
ures Okcel F is a non-woven, multi-layered fiberous version of the absorbable haemostatic material that is more lightweight and extremely flexible. It is used to achieve haemostasis over large areas, for surface applications and in hard to reach places
