As the number of cancer patients rises, oncology nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals are increasingly coming into contact with hazardous cytostatic drugs. Their need for safe and comfortable gloves is ever more acute.
As a result Ansell has developed the GAMMEX® Latex Chemo (extra protection) glove, offering great cytostatic protection based on Ansell’s extensive research into this area as part of its Ansell Cytostatic Permeation Programme (ACPP).
Not only does the GAMMEX® Latex Chemo glove provide a high level of impermeability, but its latex formulation also delivers low allergenicity, excellent comfort, flexibility and ease of use – features the gloves share with the rest of the renowned GAMMEX® range of gloves – plus a natural fit that helps prevent hand fatigue. All this contributes to increased user acceptance and more widespread protection.
The indigo blue colour of the gloves ensures that GAMMEX® Latex Chemo is easy to identify.
Its surface is designed to provide safe handling of laboratory equipment, and the self-adhesive cuff band prevents cuff roll-down. A polyurethane lining with hydrophilic and hydrophobic elements allows for easy donning with dry and damp hands.
