The Science Behind Our Products

Our Proprietary Chitosan Products: Chito+

HemCon® PRO hemostatic products possess hemostatic activity that results from a strong polycationic (positive) charge from the incorporated HemCon PRO chitosan. This positive charge correspondingly promotes binding with biopolymers, tissues, and cells possessing inherent negative charge. Tricol’s Chito+ … fast at work.
