Chromic Gut is an absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from the serosal layer of beef (bovine) intestines that has been treated with chromic salt solution. The suture is packaged in a formulated solution of solution of 90% Isopropyl Alcohol, 1% Triethanolamine, and 100% Pure Distilled Water.

  • Treated with a buffered chromium salt solution, resulting in a chromic strand with more predictable strength and uniform absorption.
  • Purity of collagen for optimal tensile strength and performance.
  • Surface smoothness to facilitate knot run-down
  • Excellent knot security
