Gel is used for all manner of things, from replacing limbs to patching up wounds (and has, in one case, been used to rebuild a man).
Access & Availability
The use of gel is very widespread across The Nine Systems, and even in neighboring areas clearly outside of its borders. It is gradually making its way across the galaxy, but as one of its components involves material found in the Ice Flats which has very few well-understood properties, it is hard to manufacture outside of the empire.
Developing from "old wives' remedies" involving the Ice Flats, it saw use as early as -230 by medics in an inter-clan war for treating the injuries of combatants. It has since evolved through use and careful testing into a viable and even very successful form of artificial tissue which can even house technological circuitry.
