PACKAGING INFORMATION

 Packaging:

The packaging of suture is very important to everyone. Consequently, Dynek has developed a suture packet which is easy to use.

All Dynek sutures are colour coded using the internationally accepted system, which allows easy transition from one brand to another.

The Dynek primary foil packs are quick and easy to open revealing the needle locked in place to help prevent needle stick injury.

 

Expiry Dates: 
 

To minimise stock holding, every Dynek primary pack and box label has the expiry date clearly shown. This provides the Operating Room Staff the ability to issue the sutures to other areas.

Lot Numbers:


Every Dynek foil and label is clearly marked with the lot number. Each lot number allows the product to be traced through every step of production, ensuring maximum manufacturing control and trace ability.
