Medical gloves are a form of personal protective equipment that’s used as an infection control strategy. They’re made disposable to reduce the risk of cross-contamination and protects against chemicals, bodily fluids and other contamination hazards.
Our first responders and medical professionals must always wear these disposable gloves during examinations, surgical procedures, or any situation where the risk of coming into contact with germs and bacteria runs high. It’s also important that your surgical gloves fit properly and have no tears or punctures.
Galls carries a large selection of medical gloves to prevent the spreading of viruses and bacterias from caregiver to patient. Our medical safety gloves include top brands such as North American Rescue, Microflex Medical, Dyna Med, SAS Safety and much more.
Types of Medical & Exam Gloves
Two of the most common types of gloves used in the medical field are latex gloves and nitrile gloves - each with its own benefits.
Nitrile vs Latex
Latex gloves come from rubber trees and provide the most comfort, flexibility, and tactile sensitivity. This type of glove is thinner and is used for protection against bacteria and viruses. 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 material for maximum strength and tear-resistance while delivering the sensitivity of a thinner glove.
Disposable nitrile gloves are used as an alternative for those allergic to latex. These non-latex gloves are thicker, three times more resistant to punctures, and provide an excellent barrier against bloodborne pathogens and diseases. They’re most commonly used for examinations and the handling of hazardous materials such as chemotherapy chemicals.
Ideal for first responders, the Galls 5-Mil Nitrile Exam Gloves deliver excellent strength, flexibility, and non-binding comfort. These black nitrile gloves are powder-free and resistant to punctures, tears, and rips. They also come in a box of 100 or a case of 1,000.
