The advanced GAMMEX® Non-Latex Antimicrobial1,3 surgical glove is now available in Canada, with broader roll-out to follow.

Ansell first launched its unique and proprietary AMT™ Antimicrobial Technology, to industry acclaim, in Australia in 2010, with the GAMMEX Powder-Free with AMT Antimicrobial Technology surgical glove. Today, Ansell is building on this success and extending its antimicrobial technology range to include a latex-free surgical glove, another new to the world medical device.

The GAMMEX Non-Latex Antimicrobial surgical glove provides a new level of protection for healthcare workers, protecting not only against latex (Type I) allergies, but against microbial transmission due to intraoperative glove breaches. Up to 83% of glove breaches go unnoticed by surgeons, further increasing the risk of contamination.*

The glove’s antimicrobial chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) coating is effective against 99% of the Hepatitis C virus, HIV-1 strain Mn and six common infectious bacteria, including drug-resistant MRSA2.

“The GAMMEX Non-Latex Antimicrobial surgical glove is another indication of our commitment to develop clinically relevant products in anticipation of healthcare workers’ needs,” said Anthony B. Lopez, President and General Business Manager, Ansell Medical Solutions. “Our relentless focus on innovation is evident in the new products and technologies we launch aimed at providing the utmost protection for healthcare workers and patients alike.”

The GAMMEX brand is the global brand leader in surgical gloves, with more than 100 million pairs used annually in hospitals worldwide. The GAMMEX product range incorporates cutting-edge technologies to provide a wide range of advanced protection solutions for healthcare professionals. Today, Ansell takes this protection to a new level and sets a new standard for infection prevention in the global healthcare industry.
