Biosyn™ Monofilament Absorbable Sutures

Biosyn™ synthetic absorbable sutures are prepared from Gylcomer™ 631, a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide (60%), dioxanone (14%), and trimethylene carbonate (26%). These sutures are colored violet to increase visibility and are also available undyed.

The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Gylcomer™ 631 gives the suture:

  • Excellent initial strength
  • Excellent in-vivo strength over the critical wound healing period
  • Excellent knot security
  • Minimal memory for handling ease

Biosyn™ sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in ophthalmic surgery, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery.
