Luna Innovations Provides TrueClot Blood Simulant
Luna Innovations reached out to HealthySim recently to let our community know about their awesome simulated blood moulage products:
“TrueClot is currently for sale and in use by military combat medical trainers, medical and Police, Fire and EMSprofessionals across the country. We’ve also started selling internationally as well. Our TrueClot Blood Simulant Concentrate can be reconstituted in water by the end user and our Task Trainer Kits are designed to be used in wound packing and advanced hemostatic gauze (such as QuikClot) training and simulation scenarios. Our Simulated Hemostatic Gauze is made using the same gauze material Z-medica uses to manufacture QuikClot and CombatGauze. Additionally, TrueClot launders from clothing and washes from skin with soap and water. As you can see in the video, you can also make instant simulated blood clots for moulage as well. One of our Fire Department customers uses the clots to simulate avulsed tissue as well simply by squeezing the water from the clots and applying it to a manikin. We also expect TrueClot to be approved for use on several advanced manikin simulators and the product is currently being tested by several advanced trauma manikin manufacturers with excellent results.”
Check out this video below to see TrueClot in action:
Purchasable now are blood simulants (sold by the gallon), clotting agents, and Hemostatic Gauze. You can event get a sample kit for only $25!
LUNA’s TrueClot Blood Simulant is a highly realistic simulated clotting blood for use in realistic trauma and hemorrhage control training. Realistic clotting for combat wound packing and hemorrhage control training can be achieved using our Simulated Hemostatic Gauze in a task trainer or hemorrhage simulator. Simulated clots for moulage or surgical training can be created using TrueClotTM Blood Simulant and our liquid Clotting Solution.
TrueClot Blood Simulant is safe and non-hazardous, washes from skin and clothing with soap and water and can be disposed of in regular trash. The simulated blood will not clot unless it comes in contact with our Simulated Hemostatic Gauze or Clotting Solution and is stable for 6-12 months if stored at room temperature.
Note: I have a question out to their representatives regarding tested use of this simulant with manikin products. I will update this article with the response when received.
For now, you can learn all about Trueclot at Luna’s Website!
