Novosyn® is a mid-term absorbable braided and coated synthetic suture made of polyglactin 910. Novosyn® degrades by hydrolysis and provides a predictable and reliable absorption.

  • Better flexibility performance and similar knot safety compared to the market reference.
  • Greater smooth surface than market reference in USP sizes 0 and 2/0, allowing an easier and faster knot running down.
  • Needle penetration performance better for the most used needles of Novosyn® compared to the market reference.
  • Less inflammatory reaction after suture implantation compared to the market reference based on in-vivo animal studies.
