Washington: Researchers have developed liquid bandages that could be employed to seal your wound that also without any surgery.
The scientists at the University of Maryland found a way to apply a layer of 370 nanometer-wide biodegradable fibers to close wounds using a standard airbrush machine.
According to Chemical and Engineering News, traditional methods of applying nanofiber bandages using "electrospinning " could damage skin cells but the new method is clean, since the acetone required to make the polymer nanofiber sprayable evaporates before they hit the skin.
Experiments involving sealing diaphragm hernias, surgical incisions in the lung and intestine, and the liver of a pig were conducted successfully, with the nanofiber bandage decaying to nothing in 42 days.
