About us

What we do

Assut Medical Sàrl develops, manufactures and markets sterile surgical sutures and microsurgical knives. Among the few suture companies in the world to do so, Assut Medical Sàrl produces its own atraumatic surgical needles with its own-built machines and equipment, with decades of experience. In addition to its large range of needles and surgical sutures, a line of microsurgical knives has been created in 1998.

With our factory situated in the Swiss watch-industrial region where the production of fine precision products are a part of the Swiss heritage, our in-house technicians and outside technical consultants are a recognized asset. Our internally designed and self-built, latest generation automatic needle production machines, operating since 2010, result from this heritage. Assut sutures are designed and made for all surgical specialties, from the finest needle and USP size of thread to the largest retention needle and thickest USP suture size.

Whether absorbable natural and synthetic sutures or non-absorbable sutures, Assut sutures meet the Surgeon’s modern requirements. Our assortment allows us to challenge the largest multinational competitors and we present ourselves as an alternative to these large groups. Disposable Assut knives are made in a full assortment to satisfy ophthalmic surgery requirements. The Assut Medical group of companies employ over 150 people and are constantly on alert to satisfy daily challenging needs in the surgical and medical field around the world with their dedicated and enthusiastic staff and employees.
