Chromic Catgut Sutures
Chromic Catgut Suture - ORICHROME is an absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) Derived from the sub mucosal fibrous layer of healthy sheep intestines. Strands of purified collagen taken from the Serosal layer of selected bovines, tanned with chrome salts to provide Greater resistance to absorption.
Type : Twisted multifilament with a monofilament appearance
Color : Dark brown
Tissue reaction : Moderate.
Absorption : By phagocytosis. The rate of absorption is slowed down by chromizing. Complete mass absorption in approximately 90 days. Approximately 50% of tensile strength remains after 14
days. When used in infected tissues or in tissues with increased levels of proteolytic Enzymes (stomach, cervix, vagina) it is more quickly absorbed.
Tensile Strength : Tensile strength is retained for 14 - 21 days.
USP Range : USP 4/0 – USP 2
Sterilization : EO (Ethylene Oxide)
Needle Type : Round Bodied, Cutting Edge, Taper Point, Straight, Blunt Point
Packing : In aluminium foil packages with or without needle, Box of 12 Sutures
Certifications : ISO 9001 : 2015 , ISO 13485 : 2016 , WHO GMP, CE Certified
