Surgical gloves are used for infection prophylaxis and are subject to quite high demands in the daily routine of hospitals and doctor’s offices. Wearing sterile gloves reduces direct contact with blood and other bodily fluids, which protects both the patient and the medical staff from potential infections. In addition to optimal functionality, safety and a high level of wearing comfort, the choice of material is also of matter for the purchase of suitable surgical gloves. Basically, a distinction is made between the following sterile gloves:
All models are designed as disposable gloves. If you wish to buy surgical gloves, we offer you a good range of items that easily meets these versatile and high demands. Whether you are looking for latex-free surgical gloves, or gloves made of latex, you will find the right product and will not take any unnecessary risks here.
Latex surgical gloves are among the most common types of surgical gloves. This is mainly because the material properties of latex are very well suited to the complex requirements of surgical procedures. On the one hand, the material is particularly resistant and thus tear- and puncture-proof. On the other hand, latex also provides a particularly high level of grip sensitivity. The natural feel allows clean working with high tear resistance. To avoid potential allergies, many models are made of natural latex, which has a naturally lower protein content. If you wish to buy latex surgical gloves, you will find a wide range of sterile latex gloves with a fully anatomical shape, which are especially adapted to the demanding requirements of the operating theatre here.
Even though latex is the most common material for surgical gloves, there are other materials from which surgical gloves are made of. The choice of latex-free surgical gloves can have different reasons. Personal preference in terms of material and comfort can make you decide, although it is not uncommon that a latex allergy is the reason for your choice. Nitrile gloves are a preferred alternative for users who cannot tolerate latex. They are anti-skid, extremely stretchable and available in anatomical shape with pre-formed fingers. Whether due to reasons of comfort or allergies: here you will find high-quality latex-free surgical gloves that can also easily cope with the complex demands of the operating theatre.
In general, powdered surgical gloves are not recommended. Studies have shown that the risk of postoperative wound infection due to the bacterial contamination, wound healing disorders or adhesions is increased. At the same time, the high protein content also increases the risk of developing a latex allergy and asthma. Powdered latex gloves are considered the main cause of latex sensitisation and skin reactions in the medical field. For the operating theatre, the maximum protein content allowed is 30 µg.
When performing surgical procedures, nothing can be left to chance. The duration of the operation requires full concentration and top performance from material and personnel. Sterile surgical gloves are a key element between surgeon and patient and have to meet very special requirements. On the one hand, they must guarantee the greatest tear resistance possible in order to exclude possible infections; on the other hand, it is very important that as much movement and tactile feeling as possible remain, despite wearing gloves. Both are an absolute prerequisite for precision work in the operating theatre. Since the surgeon often comes into contact with liquids, the material must be designed in such a way that a high level of grip safety is guaranteed, no matter the wetness. As a medical device, surgical gloves are subject to the EU directive for medical devices and belong to personal protective equipment category III. Certified surgical gloves can be recognised by the CE marking. Only products that conform to EU Directive 89/686/EEC and have been tested by a notified testing body receive this mark.
