The key differentiators of Axio chitosan technology
A. Product Innovation
Axio’s current product has strong proprietary technology that enhances the haemostatic properties of its biopolymer – 100% chitosan:
- Enhances absorption leading to concentration of erythrocytes and platelets leading to Platelet adhesion, aggregation and coagulation resulting in enhanced clotting.
- Enhances basic mucoadhesive and polycationic properties of the product that enhances adhesive effect.
B. Process & manufacturing innovation
Axio has process and manufacturing innovation that substantially enhances the product and delivers. Right concentration of the Active Ingredient in the right form factor for trauma wounds.
Strong Process that is based on bio-engineered chitosan ensures –
- 100% chitosan dressing with Low polydispersity index provides good hemostatic and bacteriostatic properties.
- Ensures that the chitosan dressing which is active on all sides, provides higher surface area per unit mass for quicker blood absorption and hemostasis effect.
- Manufacture through natural cross-linking throughout the process without the use of any chemical cross-linking agents.
- A pH controlled end product, which helps in easy removal of the product from the wound using water or saline.
C. Advantages over Competition
- Better water and blood absorbency & adhesion.
- Quicker hemostasis than zeolite/kaolin-based silver impregnated dressings due to inherent cationic charge of reengineered chitosan.
- Quicker hemostasis than chitosan impregnated gauze due to higher porosity, blood absorbency and adhesion.
- 100% natural chitosan obtained from purer sources compared to other chitosan from exoskeletons that competition use.
- Easy, Quick removal without causing further trauma to the wound and doesn’t leave any residue behind.
