Nov. 19 (Bloomberg) - A small lab in Brooklyn is working on a gel that can stop bleeding in 20 seconds. Platelets stick together when VetiGel, made from plant-based polymers, comes into contact with blood. VetiGel's co-founder, Joe Landolina, started working on the project while he was a freshman at New York University.
