A Monomer for Medical Applications
Medical technology companies are finding new, exciting ways to utilize polyglycolic acid (PGA) and co-polymers with lactic acid (PGLA) in biomedical devices and applications.
PGA-based sutures were the first synthetic bioabsorbable sutures; now they're used in operating rooms around the world. The pharmaceutical industry uses high purity glycolic acid to produce polymers with timed-release properties.
Its extremely low impurity profile makes the glycolic acid high purity 70% grade ideal for the production of PGA polymers used in medical and pharmaceutical applications. Leading global PGA manufacturers use the glycolic acid high purity 70% product to manufacture sutures, staples, meshes, and other implants.
Glycolic Acid High Purity 70% Features and Benefits
Glycolic acid high purity 70% grade offers strong, tough physical properties to give wound closure products ideal knot strength and durability.
This product's well-known, proven bioabsorbability properties offer comfort and peace of mind in medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Known PGA and co-polymer degradation profiles facilitate the design of products that break down predictably. Sutures, staples, and other implants are readily metabolized or excreted.
