PARDES-HANNA, Israel, July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RedDress Ltd announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its RD1 system.
RD1 is an innovative wound care product which enables health care providers to produce in real time, in vitro whole blood clots, for use as a chronic wound care product. It has been developed to address the need for cost effectiveness and clinical effectiveness of wound care.
The RD1 System is intended to be used at point-of-care for the safe and rapid preparation of whole blood clot from a small sample of a patient's own peripheral blood.
