An improvement on the liquid bandage.

Interesting to me, at least, is that the older liquid bandages that involved a treated swab upon which the glue was applied then swabbed onto a cut to seal it (hardening within a minute or two), have gone away. There are still products that harden more slowly in air, such as Liquid Skin. I wonder if legal worries led to the demise of the more quickly hardening products, because stupid people were using it to glue their eyes shut or such things. There is still a fast hardening version that can be had for hospital use, with an Rx needed. I miss those, they were the best thing for quickly fixing cuts and cracks on fingers used for typing and playing keyboards. I’d think that if this mussel glue hardens equally quickly, it would also never see consumer shelves, though it might make it to doctors’ offices and operating rooms.

Glue would be nicer than staples in the head for a scalp tear.

Thanks for the post and ping.

One of the questions that comes to mind is the immune system responses to these patches of bio-super-glue.

Don’t think for a minute that under Obamacare this type of treatment will be approved. The government will be deciding who gets care... babies with birth defects are to be aborted or denied treatment.
