Examination Gloves Protect the Examiner and the Patient
Examination gloves are among the most important consumables in all medical disciplines and are worn to prevent infectious transmission and cross-contamination. Medical examination gloves are equally designed to protect the examiner and the patient, as direct skin to skin contact is completely avoided. As a rule, disposable gloves are powder-free and non-sterile, simply because general exams and treatments do not often require sterile protective clothing. Likewise unlike sterile surgical gloves, which often come in pairs, examination gloves can usually be worn on either hand.
Latex Gloves, Nitrile Gloves and Vinyl Gloves
Examination gloves are most often made of latex, natural rubber, vinyl or sometimes copolymers. In order to assure a high level of comfort, the exam gloves should provide a good fit. That means that they should be made in accordance with the anatomy of the hand and offer ample freedom of movement without being too loose. The elasticity of disposable gloves makes it easier to put them on and take them off while also preventing them from tearing. Today's modern materials are highly elastic, despite being thinner; usually AQL 1.5 or less.
Exam gloves should always maintain balance between tactile sensitivity and safety. The thinner the material is, the better the touch sensitivity of the wearer, but also the higher the possibility is that the material will puncture, tear or become porous. Therefore, medical gloves are put through strict tests and are allowed to have a maximum thickness of AQL 1.5. This ensures that the material remains thick and tear-resistant under strain and has enough security for the user. The disposable nature of these items makes them especially hygienic.
Latex-Free Gloves for Users with Latex Allergies
Some users are allergic to latex proteins or have sensitive skin that prevents them from wearing common latex gloves. To accommodate their needs, we also offer a wide variety of latex-free gloves that are made of nitrile or neoprene, for example. You can find powder-free nitrile gloves and powder-free vinyl gloves to prevent residue from being left on the user and patient or you can purchase lightly-powdered vinyl gloves.
Some of the more popular latex-free gloves sold in our shop are the Unigloves Pearl nitrile gloves, which are produced in accordance with EN 455 and EN 374 standards. Not only are they latex free, but they are also powder free, have an AQL of 1.5, a roll cuff and roughened finger tips for added grip and dexterity. These nitrile gloves can be worn on both hands and come with 100 disposable gloves per box.
