Ansell Healthcare Receives CE Mark for GAMMEX® Powder-Free Gloves With AMT Antimicrobial Technology
Date:10/17/2011

BRUSSELS, October 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Novel Gloves First to be Classified as Class III Medical Devices

Ansell Healthcare, a global leader in healthcare barrier protection, announced today that it has received the CE Mark for GAMMEX® Powder-Free gloves with AMT Antimicrobial Technology. Through its unique virus and bacteria-killing technology, the novel GAMMEX® Powder-Free with AMT provides protection against some of the most common pathogens and drug-resistant bacteria in the event of a glove breach*. Ansell will commercially launch GAMMEX® Powder-Free gloves with AMT across Europe in the autumn of 2011.

"We look forward to bringing a new level of protection and peace of mind to the surgical staff," said Peter Dobbelsteijn, Senior Vice President EMEA, Ansell Healthcare. "GAMMEX® Powder-Free with AMT has its own immune system to fight back against pathogens that migrate through the breaches that inevitably occur in actual use."

The gloves, made of natural rubber latex, provide the same feel, sensitivity, flexibility and dexterity as conventional gloves when manipulating and handling instruments. The main difference is the active antimicrobial layer which contains chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG). This proprietary technology can provide ongoing antiviral and antibacterial protection against HIV, hepatitis C and infectious bacteria.

"The new GAMMEX® Powder-Free with AMT is a significant technical breakthrough in terms of bringing about a change from passive protection to active protection. These new gloves respond to the demands of healthcare workers in the surgical theatre who face infection risks every day. With AMT Antimicrobial Technology, we can offer healthcare workers an extra level of security. Glove breaches happen during surgery through the use of sharp instruments and with the AMT technology, Ansell provides for a backup plan," said David Lucas, Vice President Science & Techno
