Abstract: The invention is a fibrin glue that avoids the use of fibrinogen and thus eliminates the need for premixing and premature clot formation. The fibrin glue of the invention comprises thrombin, thromboplastin and calcium and may have clotting Factors, VII, IX and X, and the like. The invention also comprises a biosealant for use with the fibrin glue without fibrinogen or for use alone. The biosealant is a two component mixture of gelatin/resorcinol and glyoxal/glutaraldehyde/4-(p-maleimidophenyl) butyric acid. The two components are mixed on use.
