BD acquires Tissuemed, Ltd. to add surgical sealant to portfolio

Dec. 9, 2021

BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) announced it has acquired Tissuemed, Ltd., a privately held firm headquartered in Leeds, England that develops self-adhesive surgical sealant films.

The acquisition of Tissuemed, Ltd. expands BD's global offerings for surgeons outside of the United States. Tissuemed's lead product, Tissuepatch, is a proprietary sealant technology that bonds to tissue to help control internal bleeding or prevent leaks from surgical incisions. The technology's thin, flexible and transparent composition that is ready to use out of the package makes it ideally suited for a range of surgical sealant applications.
