Merisoft PlainTM gut suture is an absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from sheep intestines.

Merisoft PlainTM meets all the requirements established by United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) for Natural absorbable surgical sutures.


The tensile strength is maintained for not more than 7 to 10 days post implantation, and its absorption is complete within 60 to 90 days.


Merisoft PlainTM 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
  • Rigidly controlled spinning & drying to ensure higher tensile strength
