BioCer Present Newly EU Approved Super Rapid Plant-based Hemostat at EACTS

BAYREUTH, Germany, September 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

BioCer Entwicklungs GmbH (BCE) a German implantable biological medical device development and manufacturing company announced today that it has achieved commercial approval to begin distribution in the EU, and international markets where CE mark is accepted of HaemoCer Plus. HaemoCer Plus is an Absorbable Polysaccharide Hemostat (APH) and an innovative powerful hemostatic technology that exhibits exceptional speed and ratio of absorbency.

"HaemoCer Plus follows 2 years of development and is a huge technological milestone with clear efficiency benefits. In comparative testing with our first agent HaemoCer the accelerated absorbent product nature is significant, and clearly evident to a far greater extreme with older plant-based powdered agents. As surgeons experience the rapid mode of action of HaemoCer Plus we expect they will convert, and this product will rapidly dominate this market segment," stated Dr. Markus Heinlein, Managing Director BCE. "As problematic bleeding in cardiac surgery is a constant challenge, BioCer are pleased to present and launch HaemoCer Plus at the EACTS."

Haemocer Plus APH is a plant-based hemostatic agent that utilizes the same raw material as BCE's flagship product HaemoCer. HaemoCer Plus APH technology is delivered in a powder format developed utilizing a new modification to Biocer's Polysacharide Ultra-hydrophilic Resorbable Engineering (PURE) manufacturing process. The new highly absorptive, biocompatible agent now performs at exceedingly fast absorptive speeds achieving results twice as fast and at double the capacity of HaemoCer.

HaemoCer Plus will be presented at the EACTS 5th-9th October 2013 in Vienna, Austria. Other meetings in 2013 include Medica (Germany) and Asia Pacific Hernia Society (Hong Kong) at BioCer's booth. BioCer also plan to attend Arab Health and welcome expressions of interest in distribution or licensing queries to please visit http://www.biocer-gmbh.de or email info@biocer-gmbh.de.
