Polymer Solution for hemostasis
AMP® technology is a proprietary engineering process that modifies plant starch into biocompatible, absorbable hemostatic polysaccharides.
AMP® particles have a molecular structure that rapidly absorbs water from blood, causing a high concentration of platelets, red blood cells and coagulation proteins at the bleeding site which accelerates the physiologic clotting cascade. The interaction of AMP® particles with blood rapidly produces a gelled matrix that adheres to and seals the bleeding tissue. AMP®particles are readily dissolved by saline irrigation and are degraded rapidly by human enzymes.
AMP® particles have been widely used in open surgery and proved to be safe and effective in achieving hemostasis.
EPI provides an innovative powder delivery system to enable endoscopists to spray the AMP® power directly to the designated site via endoscope. The innovative applicator includes a delivery catheter and a specially designed powder/air mixing chamber that is connected to the powder container and the EndoClot® Air Compressor.
The delivery catheter is inserted into the endoscope and positioned toward the lesion in the gastrointestinal tract. Pressure coming from the air compressor propels the powder through the catheter directly to the designated area. The unique anti-reflux design prevents occlusion.
+ Directly spray the powder to the designated area
+ Works for both gastroscopy and colonoscopy
+ Easy to deploy
