Anser Medical is a supplier of medical devices to the UK healthcare sector.
Our growing product range includes products which promote rapid blood clotting during surgical intervention and for topical use. These haemostatic devices include gelatin sponges, oxidised cellulose gauzes, powders & sprays and leading edge biotechnology products such as SealFoam the latest plant based haemostatic sealant. We also have an excellent range of cotton surgical patties for neurosurgical applications.
The SURGISPON gelatin sponges are available in a range of commonly used sizes and priced to release significant scarce resources being around a third the cost of leading brands. They are available direct from Anser Medical or via the NHS Supply Chain catalogue. For more details go to the navigation bar above and click on products and select SURGISPON.
The BLOODCARE oxidised cellulose range is available in 3 delivery formats, textile (or gauze), powder and spray respectively. The textile form is available as a knitted gauze called BLOODCARE net, and a denser woven gauze called BLOODCARE matrix. BLOODCARE is made from high grade cotton, so compared to rayon/viscose forms of oxidised cellulose it is more rapidly absorbed (within 12 to 72 hours) and is designed to be left in place.
The BLOODCARE powder and spray forms are made by grinding the BLOODCARE matrix into a powder, then increasing the pH with calcium to form a Hydrogen Calcium Salt of Oxidised Cellulose (HCSOC). As well as its haemostatic properties with the presence of calcium ions the BLOODCARE powder has a partial analgesic effect (i.e. gives pain relief!).
The BLOODCARE range is priced at half the cost of the leading brands and is available direct or via the NHS Supply Chain catalogue. For more details go to the navigation bar above and click on products and select the BLOODCARE form required.
