Surface wetness test in the lab: Optimal adhesion to dry tissue

As promised, here is the link to the video taken from some lab testing of TissuePatchThoracic and specifically its adherence to lung tissue. Yesterday’s information suggested a drier surface offered better adhesion than a wet surface, and this video bears that out. A wet surface seems to encourage an effect like “aquaplaning”, where a layer of liquid prevent the product from coming into contact with the tissue surface. In contrast, the dry surface clearly shows the patch being almost instantly adherent to the tissue. TissuePatch adheres by a two-stage process commencing with initial electrostatic tack followed by covalent bonding. This video provides some hints for the user about how to get the very best from the product.
