The Radik Plus suture is covered with Chlorhexidine diacetate (CHA), it provides both significant antimicrobial activity and low toxicity and sticks well to the skin or mucous membrane.


Chlorhexidine diacetate shows high antibacterial activity against various fungi, virus and bacteria, especially gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, yeast fungi, skin parasites, lipophilic virus.


Chlorhexidine diacetate has a well-established safety profile, it’s quite commonly used for oral rinses and skin cleaners for human. Exposure to Chlorhexidine diacetate from our sutures is minimal, the Chlorhexidine diacetate of our anti-bacterial sutures is 20 ~ 75 ppm (0.0020% ~ 0.0075%)
