The 'MeTro' Glue Seals Wounds in Just 60 Seconds

Stitches and staples are the commonplace solution for sealing wounds but can be rather invasive and require removal after a certain amount of time, so the 'MeTro' surgical glue has been designed to eliminate the need. The glue starts as a liquid that solidifies into a gel-like substance upon application to hold the tissue together to aid the healing process. The glue is then cured with UV light to form a tight bond that is still somewhat elastic to ensure it's comfortable and manageable by the patient.

The 'MeTro' surgical glue can also be manipulated to remain in place for a desired length of time to ensure it's suitable for a wide array of different procedures ranging from simple to invasive.
