SutuCRYL (Polyglactin 910)

SutuCRYL is the brand of Polyglactin manufacturer by SUTUMED.
The Polyglactin 910 is a synthetic absorbable, multifilament sterile suture that meets the requirements established by the USP.
Poliglactin is composed by one poli (glicolide-co-l-lactide) 90-10 and coated in poli (glycolide-co-l-lactide) 30-70 calcium stearate.
It degrades by chemical hydrolysis, the polymer degrades to glycolic acid and lactide that are absorbed and metabolized by the human body.
The absorption of the suture is practically total between 60 and 80 days, from the date on which the implant is placed.
Polyglactin sutures have mild tissue reaction during the absorption process.

Packing
  • Color: violet.
  • Thread size: from 5/0 to 2 USP.
  • Sterilized by Ethylene Oxide.
  • Boxes with 12 or 36 units.
Advantage
  • Packaging ensures product sterility.
  • Siliconized needles to ensure minimum tissue trauma.
  • Certified Tensile Strenght.
  • Uniform thread preventing tissue drag.
  • Softness, flexibility, and elasticity that facilitates the use and concretion knots.

Sutumed Corp is ISO 13485-certified, owns an FDA-registered facility and has a CE certification to distribute and market its products in the European territory.

The construction of our manufacturing plant in Brazil was completed in the year 2015 and production has commenced. The quality and production capacity of the manufacturing plant in Brazil has been able to meet the ever-increasing demand for our surgical sutures and surgical meshes from the European territory.

In the year 2016, we opened our first commercial office in Europe. We currently offer the global healthcare market two lines of products aimed at meeting the demands of the human healthcare market and the veterinary healthcare market.
