Medical Grade Gloves

BioGard™ Antimicrobial Nitrile

BioGard™ is the FIRST Antimicrobial Multi-Purpose glove of its kind with built-in antimicrobial properties, providing optimal protection to the wearer. When the need for antimicrobial protection is at work or at home, BioGard™ gloves have you covered.

Microbial Control
Antimicrobial PHMB (polyhexamethylene biguanide) on the exterior glove surface provides multi-purpose barrier protection for use in environments where protection against microbes is a must.

  • Use BioGard for: High risk areas, or where high level disinfection (HLD) processes & procedures are followed.
  • In laboratory testing, Ansell Antimicrobial Technology (AMT) is proven to kill up to 99.999% of bacteria that come in contact with these gloves.
  • The risk associated with Microbial Safety can be greater than Physical Safety risks (cuts, burns, chemical injuries) and often overlooked.

Skin Protection
Made from 100% nitrile rubber and is safe for latex-sensitive (Type I) users.

Durability & Dependability
Excellent puncture and chemical resistance barrier properties, delivering peace of mind in higher risk applications. Extra thick and optimized for the best balance of protection and tactile sensitivity, all while allowing for a comfortable fit while working.

Textured fingertips promote ‘sure handling’ in wet and dry environments.
