In what is said to be a technology milestone, German machine maker Dr. Collin has delivered the first medical line for suture material to a university in Thailand. The line has been developed in close collaboration with the University of Chiang Mai and under the direction of Prof. Dr. Winita Punyodomc as well as Dr. Robert Molloy.
