The Bleeding Control Bag®
The QuikClot® Bleeding Control Bag® (BCB) is used to control traumatic bleeding injuries that can result from events of any kind – natural disasters, accidents, and intentional acts of violence.
The BCB puts life-saving technology in your hands, giving you the power to mitigate bleeding. Advanced preparedness ensures you have the right medical products to control bleeding when injuries occur.
QuikClot products are used by the U.S. military, law enforcement, EMS, first responders, and hospitals.

CAUTION: Certain QuikClot® products require medical oversight by a qualified licensed medical professional. Please refer to product details, including instructions for use, and/or contact a Z-Medica sales representative. Kits and their configurations are subject to change without notice.
QuikClot products are impregnated with kaolin, a naturally occurring, inorganic mineral. Kaolin produces no known allergic1,2 or exothermic reactions. QuikClot products are safe and effective, have passed all biocompatibility testing, and do not contain any animal or human-derived proteins or shellfish products. QuikClot is the essential choice for hemorrhage control in a broad range of bleeding situations.
Fast & Effective
- Promotes clotting within minutes of application1,4-7
- The Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) recommends QuikClot Combat Gauze® as the hemostatic agent of choice for compressible hemorrhage not amenable to tourniquet use8
- No shellfish, human, or animal proteins
- Low-to-no risk of adverse reactions3
- Familiar and easy-to-use format
- Conforms readily to wound site
Efficient & Valuable
- Stops bleeding faster than standard gauze1,4
- Less expensive than protein-based products; may reduce the need for additional expensive treatments2
