Tissuemed adhesive sealant film technology referenced in new book

In a new publication entitled the Handbook of Adhesion Technology, TissuePatch technology features in a chapter entitled “Adhesion in Medicine”, authored by Dr Robin Chivers. The product is described as “a dry film which already has mechanical integrity and which is coated with materials which react on contact with the wet tissue surfaceto give a strong bond”. It is striking how in this chapter the product contrasts with other adhesive sealant methodologies, providing the functionality of a sealant with the convenience and additional performance of being a preprepared film with structural integrity.
