Since 1994, we have been engaged in providing Origut to our clients. Owing to its fast absorbing rate, anti-allergic effects and high flexibility, the offered origut is used in hospitals and health care centers by surgeons during urology, gastrointestinal and ophthalmic operations. To manufacture this Origut at our production unit, our adroit professionals use high grade strand of collage nous material and sophisticated techniques.

ORIGUT (Plain Catgut) is a fast absorbing surgical gut suture made from strand of collage nous material prepared from the sub mucosal layers of the small intestine of healthy sheep. Fast absorbing surgical gut sutures are sterile and elicit only a slight to minimal tissue reaction during absorption.

Type Twisted multifilament with a monofilament appearance
Material None
Color Beige
Tissue reaction Moderate. Plain catgut enjoys lower tissue reaction
Absorption By phagocytosis. Complete mass absorption in approximately 65 days. Approximately 50% of tensile strength remains after 7 days. When used in infected tissues or in tissues with increased levels of proteolytic enzymes (stomach, cervix, and vagina) it is more quickly absorbed.
Tensile Strength Tensile strength is retained for 7 - 14 days.
USP Range 5/0 – 3
Sterilization EO (Ethylene Oxide)
Needle Type Round bodied, cutting edge, taper point, straight, blunt point
Packing In aluminium foil packages with or without needle
