.........Our highest sales product category in the third quarter was our hemostat products, with $5.8 million in net revenue in the third quarter, a decrease of 4% from the third quarter of 2007. The three causes for the decline were the continued reduction in sales of our Duett sealing device, which is our legacy product that we have chosen to not actively promote, the as-planned conversion from hospital pricing to distributor pricing in Germany as a result of the switch to a distributor sales model, and the decline in sales to King Pharmaceuticals.
In the third quarter of 2008, King purchased $90,000 of Thrombi-Gel and Thrombi-Pad, with an additional order planned but delayed by us until the fourth quarter due to our recently completed facility expansion. We recently -- we expect King purchases to continue at the current level until we receive FDA approval for the surgical indication for the Thrombi-Gel product, which we currently target for the end of 2009.
D-Stat Dry sales were essentially constant on a sequential quarter basis, as we have maintained our leading market share in the face of intense price competition from the non-thrombin patches.
