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.
