MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — LifeScience Plus recently introduced Advanced BloodStop, a bandage that helps stop bleeding in less than one minute, at CVS/pharmacy.
“We are very excited to be able to offer this product through CVS,” stated Wayne Korteweg, COO of LifeScience Plus. “BloodStop is so much more effective and versatile than ordinary bandages; it’s an essential for any medicine cabinet, first aid kit or car for home or travel emergencies.”
The bandage looks and feels like ordinary cotton gauze when dry but transforms into a gel once it comes in contact with blood. BloodStop adheres to the skin’s surface and creates pressure to seal and protect the wound while stopping the bleeding. BloodStop is easily removed with water or saline.
Advanced BloodStop will retail for a suggested $10.99 to $13.99 for a package of five, individually-packaged, sterile gauzes.
