SILK Non-Absorbable Sutures
ALCASILK® sutures are non-absorbable sterile surgical sutures which are produced of an organic protein called fibroin. This organic protein is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx mori of the family Bombyciade. ALCASILK® sutures are processed to remove the natural oil and viscous. ALCASILK® sutures are dyed black and coated wax (KAHLWAX 1540).
ALCASILK® sutures meet all requirements for non-absorbable surgical sutures specified at the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).
ALCASILK® 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.
ALCASILK® sutures are available as sterile, multifilament, black strands in sizes USP 6/0 through USP 2 (metric sizes 0,7-5), in a variety of lengths, with or without various needles.
