PGCL Absorbable Sutures
Poly (glycolic acid (75%)-co-caprolactone (25%))
ALCALACTONE® sutures are synthetic absorbable sterile surgical sutures which are made of Polyglycolide and caprolactone.
ALCALACTONE® sutures when implanted into a living organism, it is absorbed by that organism and cause no undue tissue irritation. ALCALACTONE® sutures have been found to be non-antigenic, non- pyrogenic and elicit only a mild tissue reaction during absorption.
ALCALACTONE® sutures meet all requirements for synthetic absorbable surgical sutures specified at the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).
In order to ease of operation, ALCALACTONE® sutures are coloured D&G violet No:2. ALCALACTONE® sutures have been presented in USP 6/0 – USP 2 gauge sizes in a variety of lengths from 10 cm to 150 cm, as non-needled or attached to stainless steel needles of varying types and sizes.
ALCALACTONE® sutures are available as sterile, monofilament, dyed (violet) strands in sizes USP 6/0 through USP 2 (metric sizes 0,7-5), in a variety of lengths, with or without various needles.
