FDA Approves New Liquid Bandage

The FDA has approved a new liquid type bandage that can even be used to handle battle wounds for soldiers in the field.

The product, called "Gelspray Liquid Bandage", is a polymer that is sprayed from a 2 barrel syringe (similar to those used for impressions and cements in dentistry), and as the components mix they become a gel that is applied to the wound.

I'm not sure how well this would stick in the oral environment, but if it does, I can see dental applications for this as well.

The product is manufactured by Biocure.
