The duoSHIELD™ range of exam gloves offer an excellent compromise between optimal quality and cost, thereby providing a solution for laboratory personnel seeking protection against limited risks. Likewise, these gloves fulfill the growing need for increased protection of patients and medical staff in the health sector, hence the reference to “duo” or dual protection.
duoSHIELD™ gloves are dual registered as a Class 1 Medical Device (MDR) according to Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (Applicable norms are EN 455-1:2000, EN 455-2:2015, EN 455-3:2015 and EN 455-4:2009) and Personal Protective Equipment Category III (Complex Design) according to Regulation (EU) 2016/425.
duoSHIELD™ nitrile and latex gloves have been designed for general use in the laboratory (against minimal risks only) and for patient care activities.
duoSHIELD™ gloves are tested to demonstrate compliance with ISO 374-5:2016 for protection against biohazard. duoSHIELD™ gloves are microorganism resistant as demonstated by an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) of 0.65 or 1.5 (in conformance with EN 455-1:2000 “Requirements and Testing for Freedom from holes” and ISO 374-2:2019 Level 2 or 3). duoSHIELD™ gloves are also virus resistant based on the viral penetration test (ISO 16604:2004 Procedure B).
The duoSHIELD™ range of powder-free natural rubber latex gloves contain 50µg/g or less of total water extractable protein based on the Modified Lowry Method (EN 455-3:2015 /
ASTM D5712-15 (2020)).
