Ansell Extends Success of AMT Antimicrobial Technology for Surgical Gloves With Introduction in Europe

BRUSSELS, REDBANK, New Jersey and MELBOURNE, Australia, November 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Global leader in healthcare protection and safety solutions lands CE Mark for GAMMEX® Powder-Free Gloves with AMT Antimicrobial Technology.

The GAMMEX® Powder-Free glove with AMT Antimicrobial Technology is the first surgical glove which incorporates a proprietary antimicrobial coating to provide an additional level of protection to surgical staff against viruses and bacteria, in the event of a breach during surgery.  

Ever since its introduction last year in Australia, this unique Ansell innovation received overall industry acclaim and is being considered a significant technical breakthrough in terms of bringing about a change from passive protection to active protection.

The gloves, made of NRL, provide the same feel, sensitivity, flexibility and dexterity as conventional gloves when manipulating and handling instruments.
