Tips for Using HemaBlock


Follow the “5-Step R.A.P.I.D. Application Procedure” below for delivered hemostasis in 1-2 minutes.


Powder + Pressure = Hemostasis

We designed HemaBlock so it is easy to use. Remember, HemaBlock is safe for everyday surgical and topical applications. It can be used almost anywhere. Use it for an enucleation, but not in the eye itself.

Excess Powder

Secondary resterilization of HemaBlock Hemostatic Powder in a clinic environment is not recommended. The packaging is radiation-sterilized. Upon opening, the first application is validated for sterile application. Our outer tube contains a desiccant in the cap to keep the contents dry and efficacious for secondary non-sterile uses. High-humidity deactivates the powder.

So what do you do with the excess powder?

Any non-sterile application. Use it for dental or topical procedures; even nail trims!

In fact, it is highly recommended to use remaining excess in place of more harmful products, like silver nitrate. HemaBlock Hemostatic Powder won’t sting, stain, and it’s entirely non-toxic. If you want to go the customer service route, you can even give your clientele the remaining powder for home use. It’s a nice gift, and you don’t have to worry about children or animals getting into it. Being plant-based and non-toxic, you can eat the powder, if you wish. It won’t taste great, and make sure to wash it down with a glass of water.

If you don’t want to use it for nail trims, keep it around for dentals or other topical trauma. Pre-Filled Applicators are already loaded and ready to use.

Make your own syringes

  1. Cut the tip off the preferred size of a soft poly syringe (we recommend 1cc)
  2. Insert the modified syringe into the foil sachet and pinch foil to seal against
  3. Shake powder into the syringe
  4. Hold gloved finger over filled syringe end and compress the plunger and you are ready to use!

Are you Interested in the Reduction of Cautery?

Cautery is an effective tool in many procedures but can cause tissue necrosis and subsequently impact healing.

HemaBlock helps minimize the use of electro-cautery!

Cautery also requires a strong air exhaust system to control the odors of burnt tissue.

“All Bleeding Stops Eventually…”

Even the best surgeons can benefit from shorter procedure times and reduce worries from rebleeding. A fast, strong clot is the ideal outcome when you are looking for hemostasis.

HemaBlock + Pressure is a proven tool for both safety and efficacy in all breeds, all species, and all sizes of patients.
