Merisoft ChromicTM gut suture is a natural absorbable suture composed of purified connective tissue, mostly collagen, derived from sheep intestine. It is tanned with chromium salts to delay its absorption in the body.


Merisoft ChromicTM gut suture is treated with a chromium salt solution to resist the enzymatic action, prolonging the absorption time up to 90 to 120 days.


Merisoft ChromicTM suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation.


  • Highest level of collagen guarantees predictable absorption
  • Accurate polishing ensures smooth tissue passage
  • Packed in liquid to reduce memory & increase pliability
