Assut production of needles
Among the very few atraumatic needle and suture manufacturers in the world, our plant is located in the Swiss watch industry region, a place world-renowned for producing fine metal products.
Our assortment covers a vast range of needles from 70 microns up to the strongest/heaviest needle on USP sizes from 11-0 to -7-, in all shapes and lengths and cross-sections. Made of a special alloy stainless steel, each needle is treated individually to ensure the highest performance and sharpness.
The shape, cross-section and length of the needles are given by the needle codes, for example TS 60 or HR 40. The first letter refers to the shape of the needle, the second to the cross-section. The number stands for the needle length along the body (mm).
