The raw material for the production is selected according to most demanding criteria and in complicance with the European guidelines
This involves, in the case of catguts, an intransigent choice of the raw material allowing to produce « long-lengths » threads ( 50-60 m) with more than 5 meters intervals between the knots.
The fact that the raw materials are maintained in a moist environment during the whole manufacturing process gives the C-TEC CATGUT its exemplary suppleness. The storage in a specifically designed C-TEC Cassette containing an adapted preservative solution secures the suppleness of the thread.
The gamma ray sterilization secures a sterilization throughout the whole mass of the C-TEC catgut that means a uniform sterilisation which leads to a homogeneous tensile strength.
