Can you imagine that glue will replace surgeon thread?
Well, Czech scientists have an idea. The key will be an substance called chitosan.
The glue will work as a thread, but one of advantages it that the glue easily decompose in body without any problems.
Chitosan can be used as a carrier of healing substances. Again, chitosan will decompose without side effects.
Chitosan can be used also as a product against liposis.
Some companies want to use chitosan in colouring of fabric.
A research of chitosan is at many labs in the world. The substance it mostly produced from shells of crustaceans and this doesn’t make a production cheap. Czech scientist also found new source of the raw material. And best is that is used waste material in some productions – a fungus. This source makes the cost of chitosin production lower by a half.
