The world’s first non-leaching antimicrobial nitrile disposable gloves that kill up to 99.999% of microbes. 

A new type of medical examination glove with built-in antimicrobial technology to fight infection and combat antimicrobial resistance, providing active protection against Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs). Activated by light and oxygen, and able to kill up to 99.999% of microbes, these Antimicrobial Gloves provide an extra active layer of protection to healthcare workers.

Antimicrobial Gloves actively reduce the risk of infection transmission from an infection source to a susceptible patient. The active ingredient on the glove is a photosensitiser which generates singlet oxygen when exposed to light. This singlet oxygen oxidises the bacteria’s protein and lipid, thus leading to the death of microbes and bacteria within just five minutes of contact. This technology, built into gloves, also removes the need for additional solutions and chemicals.

The antimicrobial nitrile gloves are non-leaching, meaning that the active ingredient will not transfer to people or surfaces. These gloves are also skin-safe, being non-irritating and non-sensitising, meaning you can wear them safe in the knowledge they are not damaging or irritating your skin.
