This 2013 DURIP proposal is for the purchase of an Instron model 5943 tensiometer system price 58,020. This instrument will support research in an active DoD project, Technologies for Hemostasis and Stabilization of the Acute Traumatic Wound award number W81XWH-11-1-0836 active 2011-2015. The intent of this project is to study hemostasis of severe exsanguinating injuries. The data obtained with the tensiometer will facilitate the design of a fibrin sealant bandage to treat hemorrhage from solid organ injury in a coagulopathic subject, thus allowing the PI to fulfill the Statement of Work for the funded DoD project.
