INST prepares starch-based ‘hemostat’ material

INST prepares starch-based ‘hemostat’ material
  • A starch-based ‘hemostat’ material has been developed by the Institute of Nano Science and Technology (INST).
  • The material concentrates the natural clotting factors in blood that are critical for stopping the blood flow.
  • This is done by physically absorbing the excess fluid. The early-stage development of the starch-based ‘hemostat’ material has been published in the journal Materialia.
