EndoClot® Adhesive is a single-use kit that consists of Adhesive Hemostatic Polymer (AHP) and a unique applicator system to ensure accurate delivery of the hemostatic powder to the lesion within the GI tract.

Mr. Ji further stated that “the wound protection offered by EndoClot® Adhesive following ESD and EMR procedures will delight endoscopists who have been asking us to develop such a product”.
The introduction of EndoClot® Adhesive will commence next month in Europe and other selected international markets. EndoClot Plus will utilize its established network of distribution partners along with new strategic partners to bring this innovative product to the GI Endoscopy market.
