Cuba starts producing surgical gauze

08
Jun '10
With a view to exercise a cut, on the imports of surgical gauze and to domestically source the demand for the same in hospitals and medical centres, an industry in Cuba has started manufacturing the same within the country.

A textile company based in Villa Clara has been authorized by the National State Medical Equipment Centre to manufacture this medical product and to also promote the same within the country.

A number of clinical and bacteriological investigations were carried on the cotton gauze to establish its resistance, prior to certifying the same.

Until now, the factory has manufactured around 800,000 square meters of gauze and viewing the country's requirement of 36 million square meters of surgical gauze per year, it is believed that, such domestic gauze production would steadily supplant the imports.

The plant would be operational round the clock and would give out around 10 million square meters of gauze in the current year.
