Featured Products

Glubran 2
Glubran® 2 is a ready for use, synthetic, biodegradable surgical glue. It is a Class III CE medical device marked for internal and external use. Glubran® 2 has high adhesive and haemostatic properties and once it is polymerised it creates an efficient antiseptic barrier against the most diffused infective or pathogenic agents during the surgical intervention. Glubran® 2 polymerises quickly in contact with live tissue and wet environment creating a thin and elastic film having high tensile properties which guarantee strong adhesion to the tissues. This film naturally conforms with the tissues on which it was applied; it is not permeable to liquids and is not altered by blood or organic liquids.
Glubran Tiss 2
Glubran® Tiss 2 is a topical skin adhesive with two components (NBCA+OCA) which provide high tensile strength, good elasticity, fast closure (40-60 sec) and a polymerization temperature of 45°C. The fluidity of the product, ergonomic bottle and dedicated tip allow a controlled release of the glue even in difficult to treat areas.
Glutack® is a user-friendly device for the atraumatic laparoscopic fixation of hernia mesh. Providing precise and consistent delivery of Glubran® 2 (NBCA+MS) with every pull of the trigger, to minimize surgical complications and the potential pain associated with the use of tacks and staples. Improving surgical outcomes and reducing healthcare costs.
