‘Squirtable’ Elastic Surgical Glue Seals Wounds In 60 Seconds Emergency Treatments Could Be Transformed, Saving Lives
‘Squirtable’ Elastic Surgical Glue Seals Wounds In 60 Seconds Emergency Treatments Could Be Transformed, Saving Lives – A highly elastic and adhesive surgical glue that quickly seals wounds without the need for common staples or sutures could transform how surgeries are performed. Biomedical engineers from the University of Sydney and the United States collaborated on the development of the potentially life-saving surgical glue, called MeTro.
“With today’s methods, you have to shine the laser beam through a special gas jet or through a crystal that has to be grown with great care at ultra-cold temperatures,” said Yong Sing You, a postdoctoral researcher at PULSE and lead author of the study. “But this is exciting because you can use everyday glass, which is cheap and easily available, at room temperature. If you were to put your eyeglasses into the experiment, it would still work, and it would not even damage the glasses.”
The science is in: Your sadness is electric. Research published yesterday in the journal Applied Physical Letters shows that lysozyme, a protein found in tears and bird egg whites, can produce electricity.
