Imagine this: You’re gushing blood. Nothing seems to make it stop. Then you apply a gel to your wound, and the bleeding stops within seconds. You’re healed in minutes.
Death to loss of blood could be eradicated entirely. Lives will be saved.
Don’t believe us watch this video below.
Lots of blood, so if you are quite squeamish you have been warned!
When injected into a wound site, the gel can form a clot within 12 seconds and permanently heal the wound within minutes, Landolina says.
“The fastest piece of equipment we have measures every 12 seconds, so we know that it happens in less than 12 seconds.”
The about of lives that could be saved from this product. Gun wounds or stab wounds can be permanently sealed up in just minutes! Incredibly amazing!
About the inventor
As fast-acting as VetiGel is, its inventor may be faster.
Landolina invented an early version of the gel out of his grandfather’s lab. At the age of 17, he was still in high school.
The mind has no boundaries
As a freshman at New York University, he and a junior entered the gel in a business competition.
Up against graduate students and university professors, they were the only undergraduates who entered. They took second place.
Over the next four and a half years, Landolina turned the prototype into a business.
His project partner, Isaac Miller, became his cofounder and CFO. VetiGel started taking shape.
Suneris announced last week that it would begin to ship VetiGel to veterinarians later this summer.
Shipping to humans will be the next objective, after analyzing any side effects of the product.

Today, Suneris is bringing VetiGel to the (four-legged) masses.
The company is taking preorders from veterinarian offices and have began shipment from its Brooklyn offices already.
How it works
The science that makes this all possible is surprisingly basic.
Each batch of gel begins as algae, which is made up of tiny individual polymers.
If you break those polymers down into even tinier pieces, “kind of like Lego blocks,” Landolina says, you can put them into the gel and inject that gel into a wound site.
Once it hits the damaged tissue, whether it’s open skin or a biopsied soft organ — livers, kidneys, spleens — the gel instantly forms a mesh-like structure.
“What that means, on the one hand, is that the gel will make a very strong adhesive that holds the wound together,” Landolina says.
“But on the other hand, that mesh acts as a scaffold to help the body produce fibrin at the wound’s surface.”
Fibrin helps repair tissue over the long-term. It’s what allows VetiGel not only to work fast in sealing leaks, but to actually heal the skin.
Within a few minutes of application, the gel can be safely removed.
Due to the incredible prosperity of their product.
Suneris wish to eradicate dead by loss of blood completely from the world.
And have their product in very hospital, along side being able to be brought from the pharmacy.
He is definitely worthy!
