Healthcare professionals are particular about their equipment—and thankfully so. Any patient wants a high degree of diligence paid to the quality of products used to ensure their well-being.
That same level of attention is important when it comes to disposable gloves. They protect the caregiver as well as the recipient of that care from bloodborne pathogens and environmental contaminants.
AMMEX Professional Blue Nitrile Examination Gloves (product code: ACNPF) are the first line of defense for healthcare pros and patients alike. They also provide an excellent opportunity for distributors looking to expand their medical gloves portfolio.
Not only do these gloves deliver the kind of first-rate barrier protection you would expect from nitrile, but they also achieve an even higher level of dependability: They are tested to resist permeation against fentanyl citrate and chemotherapeutic agents for up to 240 minutes based on the ASTM D6978 standard.
Standing up to harsh chemicals
If your clients are administering chemotherapy drugs—or performing most any other non-sterile medical procedure—these gloves are the right choice. Testing in accordance with this standard requires the use of at least nine chemotherapy drugs, so the gloves must pass rigorous criteria.
Chemotherapy, of course, is a drug treatment that uses powerful chemicals to kill fast-growing cells in the body. It is most often used to treat cancer, since cancer cells grow and multiply much more quickly than most other cells. Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the U.S., after heart disease.
These highly rated AMMEX Professional exam gloves are made from puncture-resistant premium nitrile, which also protects against most common chemicals and cleaning solutions. They feature excellent tactile sensitivity for working with medical implements and other tools, a feature enhanced by textured fingertips and a micro-roughened surface. Their elasticity affords them exceptional fit and feel.
Everyday protection for professionals
Being made from nitrile, they are latex free—they won’t aggravate allergies to natural rubber—and powder free. The gloves are chlorinated on the interior to make changing easier.
Their classification as chemotherapy gloves is significant, but to pigeonhole them as a niche product would be a mistake. These are the gloves that medical professionals want. Because of their all-around protection and versatility, they will continue to be an in-demand product.
