Ansell launched the GAMMEX Non-Latex Antimicrobial surgical glove, a new to the world medical device, in the Canadian market. This glove combines allergy and antimicrobial protection for healthcare workers in Canada, especially in the case of intraoperative glove breaches. The glove’s proprietary antimicrobial chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) coating is effective against 99 percent of the Hepatitis C virus, HIV-1 strain Mn and six common infectious bacteria, including drug-resistant MRSA2. This protects the healthcare worker against bacterial transmission, which occurs in half of glove breaches resulting from normal wear.
