Surgical Specialties Sharpoint™ Microsurgery Sutures. This is an ultra-sharp, non-glare needle. Its closely matched-diameter suture is made of specialty stainless steel wire. The needle is precisely tempered for hardness and tensile strength. The tip is a long-taper, precision-faceted diamond shape. Its four ultra sharp edges are formed using a grindless, proprietary process. The non-glare finish makes it easier to see exactly where it is placed in the tissue. The unique swage channel needle/suture union assures the suture remains attached until it is ready to cut. Its transparent packaging and large legible type speeds proper identification. Extra-long pull-tabs on the package simplify gloved-handling.
