Ansell Healthcare, a global leader in healthcare barrier protective products, is introducing a new addition to their popular Derma Prene® glove line, the Derma Prene® PI surgical glove.
Safe for use by latex sensitive healthcare professionals and patients, Derma Prene PI gloves are made from synthetic polyisoprene and are light green in color for instant latex-free identification. Similar to the Derma Prene® Ultra, which is made from neoprene, Derma Prene PI surgical gloves are powder-free to help eliminate powder-related post-operative complications.
The reduced thickness of Derma Prene gloves provides enhanced tactile sensitivity in the fingertips, while making double gloving easier and more comfortable. Their smooth finish allows for worry-free instrument and suture handling.
Derma Prene PI offers the performance characteristics of natural rubber latex gloves without the risk of latex sensitization.
"Ansell's new Derma Prene PI offers customers an alternative when selecting a latex-free glove," remarked Carol Carrozza, vice president of marketing, professional and consumer. "Since polyisoprene is currently in such short supply, Ansell is proud to be one of a select few companies able to offer a polyisoprene glove to our customers. Our goal was to make our Derma Prene line the most comfortable, latex-free gloves on the market and I think we've succeeded."
