The widely acclaimed SHIELDskin™ gloves provide you with the highest level of “compliance, comfort and protection”. SHIELDskin™ latex and nitrile/polychloroprene gloves have been specifically designed for laboratory use to protect your assays against contamination and to protect you against biological and chemical hazards.
SHIELDskin™ gloves are classified as Category III PPE against the mortal or irreversible risks as defined in the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC. Only Category III PPE gloves are likely to provide the necessary personal protection needed in a laboratory.
SHIELDskin™ nitrile/polychloroprene and latex gloves have been specifically designed for laboratory use to protect your assays against contamination and to protect you against biological and chemical hazards.
A minimum length of 260 mm/10.3″. SHIELDskin™ gloves are the first laboratory gloves to meet the minimum length requirement for liquid proof protection as specified in EN 374-1:2003. By offering 10% extra length compared to standard length laboratory gloves (240 mm) and with extra thickness, they provide optimal protection against biohazards and chemical splashes.
SHIELDskin™ gloves have an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) of 0.65, representing a performance Level of 3 according to EN 374-2:2014. This level of protection in standard laboratory gloves has never previously been available and will provide additional confidence in meeting biosecurity procedures. Microorganism resistant per EN 374-2:2014 Level 3 (AQL 0.65) and virus resistant per ISO 16604:2004 Procedure B.
SHIELDskin™ ORANGE NITRILE™ gloves are accelerator-free, whist SHIELDskin™ Bright Latex 300 are free of thiazoles and thiurams thereby limiting the risk of type IV allergic contact dermatitis (or type IV delayed hypersensitivity). Furthermore, there are non-detectable levels of chemical allergens using aqueous solution extraction (Phosphate buffered solution) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) assay method for quantitative analysis.
The SHIELDskin™ ORANGE NITRILE™ gloves are 100% latex-free providing a solution for those seeking to eliminate or minimize the risk of Natural Rubber Latex type I allergy (or type I hypersensitivity).
The SHIELDskin™ Bright Latex 300 glove contains less than 50µg/g of total water extractables protein in order to reduce the risk of Natural Rubber Latex type I allergy (or type I hypersensitivity).
