Second, the purchase of medical gloves

1.Regular manufacturers

Choose the glove certificate provided by the formal medical glove production line with complete certificates and clear markings to achieve traceability and avoid unnecessary risks.

2.Glove material

The two most common materials for disposable medical gloves are nitrile and latex. Disposable medical latex gloves are made of natural rubber, which has good elasticity and soft texture, and provides comfortable and flexible hand.

Nitrile gloves can perfectly memorize the movements of the hands, and will not feel tired for a long time. Select high-quality natural nitrile, which is not easy to cause allergies, is the first choice for medical staff who are allergic to latex proteins or sensitive to skin. It has puncture resistance and establishes a protective barrier on the hand surface of medical staff to reduce the scratch on the skin of the hand by medical equipment.

The two-material surface of the medical gloves "micro-linen surface" provides a firm grip, so that medical personnel will not slip when handling surgical instruments, creating a safety hazard. You can choose nitrile or latex gloves according to your personal preferences, but in terms of overall comfort and technological content, we recommend nitrile gloves.

3.Glove type

In terms of location, medical gloves are generally divided into examination gloves and surgical gloves. Medical examination gloves are generally used to examine the patient's mouth or skin surface and must contain a CFDA laboratory drug safety certification. Excellent tensile elongation, strong anti-wear ability, can adapt to various weak acid and alkali environment in human skin.

On the basis of meeting the safety requirements required for examination gloves, the safety factor of surgical gloves is required to be higher. Need further sterilization and separate packaging; meanwhile, it conforms to the ergonomic curved hand shape and fits tightly with the five fingers for comfortable wearing.

Excellent humidity control maintains the shape and fit of the gloves worn by medical staff, even during prolonged surgery, and allows safe operation of medical devices.

4.Powder-free gloves are better than powdered gloves

Gloves on the market are also distinguished by powdered and powderless. To ensure safety, the powder in Medidis powdered medical latex gloves is made of food-grade corn starch that can be absorbed by the human body, which is convenient to wear.

In the medical field, the use of powder-free medical latex gloves is safer. Because powder-free gloves use advanced powder-free PU polymer coating technology, they feel soft and comfortable to wear. Especially when the medical staff is checking or performing the operation, the powder in the medical gloves will not enter the patient by mistake, which will affect the diagnosis or treatment results.
