The Nexpowder™* endoscopic hemostasis system is a powder that can be sprayed to an ulcer site, applying an endoscopic hemostatic agent. As a hydrophilic biocompatible adhesive material, it is composed of succinic anhydride (ε-poly-(L-lysine)) and oxidized dextran. The Nexpowder™* system forms the adhesive gel after making contact with the water or blood by reversible crosslinking. Crosslinked gel helps prevent bleeding, loss of body fluid and contamination of the ulcer site by adhering to the bleeding site in the gastrointestinal tract and then gel degrades within 1 day to 3 days.1,2,3

  • A proprietary powder coating technology that minimizes catheter clogging and particle scattering 
  • Unique delivery system that doesn’t rely on CO2 or air compressors
  • Distinctive blue color so you can have the confidence the lesion is fully covered
  • Highly adhesive gel that reacts to moisture, not just active bleeding, so it can be used in a variety of clinical applications

Nexpowder™* endoscopic hemostasis system was developed with you and your needs in mind.

Unique technology, strategic partnership and commitment to advancing the practice of therapeutic endoscopy.
