Antimicrobial, blue, medical grade, medium weight nitrile examination gloves

Designed to mitigate risks of cross contamination, Fortified gloves are protected from colonisation by microbes like bacteria and mould, enhance hygiene and are a more hygienic alternative to standard examination gloves.

Proven

Fortified gloves have been shown effective against all types of bacteria. BioCote silver ion technology has been proven to materially reduce microbes in just 15 minutes, with reductions of up to 99.5% achieved in 2 hours.

Long-lasting

Fortified gloves maintain their anti-microbial performance for the lifetime of the glove; the antimicrobial protection will not wear off, wash off or leach out.

Accredited / Approved

BioCote silver antimicrobial technology is considered food-safe and a suitable addition to food contact articles for use in facilities operating a HACCP based food safety programme.

How they work

The silver ion technology incorporated into our Fortified nitrile examination gloves negatively affect bacteria that contaminate the surface of the glove through:

Protein damage: Proteins are essential for the biological systems of life, any damage to these components causes the failure of essential functions such as energy production.

Cell membrane damage: By disrupting the microbes membrane, the structural integrity of the microbe is compromised, which can cause essential nutrients to leak out and catastrophic structural failure.

Oxidative damage: Antimicrobials can cause increased levels of reactive oxygen species, which can cause damage to the internal systems of the microbe.

DNA interference: The genetic material of the bacteria is disrupted. Stopping the bacteria being able to replicate by blocking the copying of their genetic material, preventing reproduction.
