Faster Hemostasis, Shorter Hold Times With StatSeal Advanced Disc

Product is ideal product following diagnostic and interventional procedures

Hemostasis Biolife StatSeal Advanced Disc Cath Lab

August 27, 2014 — Cath Labs, interventional radiology suites and hospitals are continually trying to improve patient comfort as well as save time and reduce costs. With these goals in mind, Biolife introduces StatSeal Advanced Disc.

Using the same U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared formulation of potassium ferrate and hydrophilic polymer found in StatSeal Advanced Powder, StatSeal Advanced Disc creates an instant seal for faster hemostasis and shorter hold times following diagnostic and interventional procedures. The Advanced Disc is easy to use for sheath and catheter removals and is much more cost-effective than hemostasis pads or patches.

“Labs require technology that provide the clinical benefits to meet patient needs. However, most technologies are time consuming and expensive for hospital staff and aggravating to the patient,” stated Tifton Fordham, RN, Biolife. “With StatSeal Advanced Disc, staff can now treat their patients with a product that produces faster hemostasis, ambulation times and patient throughput compared with current technologies.

“At the same time, the clinic is more productive by seeing more patients, increasing staff efficiency and decreasing costs from products that don’t work as well as StatSeal,” Fordhan said.
