When choosing the latex glove you use in your practice what factors determine your product choice?

Is cost the only consideration or do you look for quality at a reasonable cost? It is the old adage, is cheap the best?  Examination gloves are used to protect you and your staff from the risk of cross infection but how often do you consider the allergens in the glove as a potential threat. Latex allergy is a medical term encompassing a range of allergic reactions to the proteins present in natural rubber latex and can have serious long term implications on your lifestyle.

It is not a perfect predicator of allergenic protein content but, if the total levels of proteins in a glove are high, the higher the allergenic protein content and conversely, the lower the total protein content is in a glove the lower the allergen. So it can therefore be anticipated that the lower the level of total protein the latex then the lower the probability of exposure to potential protein allergens.

Chlorination, thanks to its multiple wash cycles, greatly reduces protein content in latex gloves.

MADPAC Latex Powder free gloves are double chlorinated. We want to give you the opportunity to make a conscious choice for you and your staff and have priced our gloves accordingly.
