Page 1 of 1
Medical gloves are a form of personal protective equipment and used as an infection control strategy. They’re made disposable to reduce the risk of cross-contamination and protect against chemicals, bodily fluids and other contamination hazards.
Disposable gloves should always be worn during examinations, surgical procedures, or any situation where you could come into contact with germs and bacteria. It’s also important that your surgical gloves fit properly and have no tears or punctures.
Galls carries a wide selection of medical gloves to prevent the spreading of viruses and bacterias from caregiver to patient. Our selection of gloves includes top brands such as North American Rescue, Dynarex, Dyna Med, SAS Safety and much more.
Types of Medical & Exam Gloves
Two of the most commonly used gloves in the medical field are latex gloves and nitrile gloves - each with its own set of benefits.
Latex gloves provide the most comfort and flexibility. Because of their dexterity, they’re often used for delicate operations such as the Microflex Medical Safegrip Latex Gloves. These rubber gloves utilize a super-elastic latex for maximum strength and tear-resistance while delivering the sensitivity of a thinner glove.
Nitrile gloves are often used as an alternative for those with an allergy to latex. Nitrile is three times more resistant to puncturing and provides an excellent barrier against bloodborne pathogens and diseases. They’re commonly used for examinations and the handling of hazardous materials such as chemotherapy chemicals.
Ideal for administering first aid care, the Dyna Med Black Nitrile gloves are highly popular among first responders. These black nitrile gloves are a Class 1 Medical Device that conforms to your hand for a snug fit. These black gloves are also perfect for tactical situations and act as a great protective layer under a pair of shooting gloves.
