Engineering Minute – Injectable Bandage

Injectable bandage made from Jell-O-like substance

Researchers at Texas A&M University have fabricated an injectable bandage that stops bleeding in situations where a patient could hemorrhage to death. The injectable bandage uses a thickening agent called kappa-carrageenan, made from seaweed, that is commonly used in making pastries. When the thickening agent, which is similar to Jell-O, is mixed with clay-based nanoparticles it creates injectable gelatin. Read more about injectable bandage at Texas A&M University
