About Surgical Sutures


Our surgical sutures are tested according to United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Directive (EU) requirements.

Our surgical sutures are flexible and pliable; it also offers predictable absorption rates with great tensile and knotting strength, which provides adequate mechanical support to wounds. It has a low coefficient of friction which results in less tissue injury and helps to minimize tissue reaction. The surgical sutures are available with monofilament and multifilament thread options.
