Powder-Free Latex Gloves and Nitrile Gloves

PROSEPT® markets a number of powder-free latex and nitrile gloves. All our gloves are medical grade and exceed current governmental standards. Disposable gloves play a crucial role in infection control, protecting staff and patients alike. Our latex gloves offer excellent tactile properties, strength and good resistant to chemicals while our nitrile gloves are a great alternative for those who suffer from latex allergy. In general, nitrile gloves are stronger than latex gloves and therefore are more resistant to chemicals. Our disposable gloves conform to the highest standards and are sourced from quality manufacturers. All our gloves are available in various sizes.

Infection Control Term of the Day
A skin reaction that is caused by exposure to one of the components of natural rubber latex. Latex allergy has three components which may, but usually do not, occur in any single sensitized person: irritant dermatitis, delayed (type IV) hypersensitivity, and immediate (type I) hypersensitivity. In the general population, latex allergy occurs in as many as 5% of people and up to 20% in health care workers and those with repeated, heavy exposure to latex. The immediate (type I) hypersensitivity can be life-threatening if severe and untreated.
