Welcome to SUPRAMID® ...the suture of choice! S. Jackson, Inc. has been serving specialty surgeons in Plastic Surgery, Dermatology, Orthopedics, Endodontics, and Veterinary medicine for over 50 years with our very unique SUPRAMID®and SUPRAMID EXTRA®nylon sutures. S. Jackson, Inc. is registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a manufacturer of medical devices and complies with all Current Good Manufacturing Practices.
Our SUPRAMID EXTRA®cable-type sutures are unique in that they are made of many fine inner nylon fibers which are enclosed in a smooth nylon outer shell. As a result, SUPRAMID EXTRA®cable-type sutures feel smooth like monofilament sutures but they tie better, with fewer knots, and stay tied even with short tag ends.
Even our SUPRAMID®nylon monofilament sutures handle and tie better than other synthetics because we sterilize exclusively with ETO. Other synthetics are commonly gamma-radiated, making them stiffer and more difficult to handle.
SUPRAMID®and SUPRAMID EXTRA® sutures are very strong. In fact, all of our sutures exceed the United States Pharmacopela (USP) diameter and tensile strength requirements for nonabsorbable sutures.
SUPRAMID®monofilament sutures are available in USP Size 6-0 through size 2-0, with diameters in the range from 0.099 mm to 0.339 mm. SUPRAMID EXTRA®cable-type sutures are available in USP Size 4-0 through size #8, in diameters with the range from 0.199 mm to 1.099 mm.
SUPRAMID®and SUPRAMID EXTRA® sutures are available in natural white and in black using only FDA approved Logwood black dye. In addition, our specially formulated Fluorescent SUPRAMID®sutures are available in a unique easy-to-see fluorescent green color for Veterinary surgery.
S. JACKSON, INC.is proud of the over 50 years of service to the specialty surgeon. We will continue to produce quality sutures to the highest standards and with the best service possible.
