A REVOLUTION IN GLOVE TECHNOLOGY
SHIELDskin™ gloves are classified as Category III PPE against the mortal or irreversible risks as defined in the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425. Only Category III PPE gloves are likely to provide the necessary personal protection needed in a laboratory.
SHIELDskin™ nitrile/neoprene 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/10.2". By offering 10% extra length compared to standard length laboratory gloves (240 mm) and with extra thickness, SHIELDskin™ gloves provide optimal protection against biohazards and chemical splashes. SHIELDskin™ gloves resist to permeation for at least 30 minutes against 3 out of the 18 chemicals listed in ISO 374-1:2016+A1:2018 (tested according to EN 16523-1:2015+A1:2018).
SHIELDskin™ gloves are tested to demonstrate compliance with ISO 374-5:2016 for protection against biohazard. SHIELDskin™ gloves have an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) of 0.25, 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 0.25) and virus resistant per ISO 16604:2004 Procedure B.
SHIELDskin™ ORANGE NITRILE™ gloves are accelerator-free 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).
