Nature Nanotechnology highlights the State Key Lab's finding that peptide-based nano-haemostat controls bleeding in various surgical wounds

NEW MATERIAL STOPS BLEEDING IN A HURRY

Peptides can self-assemble into gels that are able to control bleeding from surgical wounds within seconds of being applied. This new nano-haemostat could dramatically change the way surgery is performed in the future.
