United Health Products, Inc. (OTCQB: UEEC) announced that its HemoStyp™ gauze will be distributed to the dental industry by Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners. Sinc Ventures, L.L.C., UEEC’s exclusive marketing agent to the US dental industry, directly negotiated the Agreement, and has received vendor status with Henry Schein.
HemoStyp is an all-natural product, spun into a gauze which is specifically formulated to help produce hemostasis (blood clotting) almost instantly when positioned on a cut or wound. Once it has completed its task, it is readily dissolved by water or saline solution for easy removal that neither disturbs the clotted surface nor encourages re-bleeding.
Dr. Phillip Forman, CEO of United Health Products Inc., stated, "The formulation of our patented HemoStyp gauze is ideal for application in the mouth, which is prone to excessive bleeding due to the vascular nature of the area. This past December The Clinicians Report®, a leading Dental Industry publication, listed HemoStyp among ‘The Best Products Evaluated During 2012.’ This evaluation is evidenced in the dental community through Sinc's Agreement with Henry Schein," Forman concluded.
Marcus Mailei, President of Sinc Ventures, said, "The dental industry is a perfect fit for HemoStyp and we are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with Henry Schein, a world class organization and a leading distributor of dental products in the US with more than 800 field sales consultants working out of 70+ centers."
