A century of excellence
In 2008 B. Braun celebrated a century of industrially manufactured sterile sutures. This important anniversary renewed our desire to contribute to the advancement of modern surgery – by continuing into the 21st century our tradition of developing pioneering products and offering a wide range of opportunities for acquiring new skills.
What We Do
A century ago, B. Braun, founded in 1839, joined forces with surgeon Dr. Franz Kuhn to develop the first-ever industrial method of manufacturing sterile catgut. This enabled the large-scale production of sterile sutures – without compromising on quality. And this makes 1908 a landmark in the history of wound closure and surgery.
