Threads used as raw materials meet all the requirements established by the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) and the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) for Absorbable and Non-Absorbable Surgical Sutures.
All are tested before use and comply with standard values governing diameter and knot tensile strength.
We are using high quality japanese needles to improve basic performance of the suture. The needles are made of stainless steel alloy (300 stainless steel series) and possess the following characteristics:
Silicone coating – It allows easier tissue passage, which improves precision and penetration
Corrosion resistance – The chromium content of the steel allows a thin, protective surface layer of chromium oxide to form when the steel is exposed to oxygen.
Sharpness – To penetrate and carry suture through tissue with minimal resistance.
High ductility and bending strength, resulting in safe and secure needles, allowing optimal security when suturing.
The packing materials possess the following characteristics:
The peel pack protects and offers superior microbial barrier, keeping the sterility of the medical device until the package is open, or during its entire shelf life
Suitable for EO sterilization
Packing material for absorbable sutures – Opaque, excellent barrier against light, moisture and oxygen.
Packing material for non-absorbable sutures – durability, breathability and superior microbial barrier
