Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, has been awarded a 2015 “Excellence in Surgical Product (ESP) Award” in the Apparel Category. The first place win recognizes the technology innovation of its GAMMEX® Non-Latex Sensitive surgical gloves.
Sponsored by Surgical Products Magazine, the ESP Awards competition, now in its seventh year, attracts hundreds of entrants annually. The winners are chosen by Surgical Products Magazine readers (expert users of cutting-edge products and innovative technology), selecting those entrants contributing most to surgical performance, efficiency, and safety.
“Ansell is truly honored to be recognized by the readership of Surgical Products Magazine,” says Anthony López, President and General Manager of the Medical Global Business Unit at Ansell. “Ansell continuously pioneers exciting breakthroughs in the healthcare protection market, and with each new innovation, the Company further displays its commitment to workplace safety and customer satisfaction.”
One of the latest contributions to healthcare safety, GAMMEX Non-Latex Sensitive gloves feature Ansell’s own SENSOPRENE formulation, offering a high level of comfort and dexterity. The gloves also offer superior sensitivity while maintaining glove strength.
GAMMEX Non Latex Sensitive gloves (ansell.com) are made free from natural rubber latex, are powder free, and do not contain casein or any other animal derivatives which may induce skin reactions. Additionally, GAMMEX Non-Latex Sensitive gloves are free of chemical-accelerators, thus reducing the risk of chemical allergies. Chemical accelerators are generally used in the manufacturing of natural rubber latex (NRL) and non-latex (synthetic) gloves and are known to cause chemical allergies. The formulation is a unique solution that offers complete protection against latex and chemical allergies, and an advanced level of sensitivity and comfort
