Okcel has been used in surgery for over 20 years and has been used in over 3 million surgical procedures


Faster haemostasis

Okcel can generate haemostasis within three minutes faster than other oxidised cellulose products on the market

Easier to Position

Okcel can be used in open and minimal invasive surgery and is easier to position than traditional haemostats

More Absorbent

Okcel is more absorbent that traditional haemostats due to the higher surface area of the product

Fully Absorbed in 21 days

Okcel can be left in situ where it is fully absorbed by the body in 21 days without any left over residues

Okcel H-T

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

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

Okcel S

Okcel S is a strengthened, non-woven cotton wool form of oxidised cellulose, offering superior handling, higher absorbency and is designed for use in laparoscopic surgery. The properties of Okcel S mean it does not stick to instruments, it’s easy to pass through the laparoscopic portal and has no memory effect. The two smaller sizes of Okcel S are also vacuum sealed, condensing the size of the product, allowing for easier passage in laparoscopic surgery. The product then naturally increases in size when exposed to air. Okcel S has the indication to control capillary, venous and arteriolar bleeding
