Innovative Partnership Creates Europe’s First Antimicrobial Nitrile Glove

18 June 2018

Market leaders Unigloves and BioCote have combined their expertise to create Europe’s first antimicrobial nitrile gloves. 

Unigloves new Fortified single use gloves incorporate silver ion technology from BioCote, which has been scientifically proven to destroy 90% of bacteria within just 15 minutes and 99.5% in only two hours.  

Ideally suited for food, drink and meat processing and manufacturing environments, BioCote is also proven effective against E.coli and Salmonella, antibiotic resistant superbugs like MRSA, VRE, CPE and CRE, invasive fungi species such as Candida auris, plus H1N1 influenza, H7N9 and the current Aussie flu strain.  

Meeting the medical standard for pinholes (AQL 1.5) the new Fortified gloves are tested in accordance with EN455 (medical grade). They are also latex and powder free, chemical resistant and available in sizes small to X Large.  

The BioCote technology incorporated within the new Fortified gloves, prevents microbial colonisation and also renders them non-infectious, through protein and oxidative damage, membrane disruption and DNA interference. The antimicrobial protection lasts for the lifetime of the glove.  

To take advantage of this collaboration of excellence and to enjoy complete peace of mind, contact Unigloves today on innovate@unigloves.co.uk or visit: https://unigloves.co.uk/products/glove-ranges/fortified/
