In the wake of the British Medical Association (BMA) publication “In good hands – Tackling labour rights concerns in the manufacture of medical gloves”, a number of institutions have been seeking reassurances from glove manufacturers on the working conditions in the factory. In the case of the London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC), this extended to a request to undertake an on-site social audit along with their appointed auditors Asian Inspection (now QIMA).  Accordingly a visit was organised at the end of 2018 and a summary of the social audit report is now accessible from the news section of the LUPC website:   https://www.lupc.ac.uk/news/final-report-shield-scientific-glove-factory-audit Of […]

It is generally acknowledged that RNA is more prone to degradation than DNA, which may be because of the ubiquity and robustness of RNases. Accordingly researchers wishing to maintain an RNase-free environment may need to be more vigilant. Whilst human skin has long been recognised as a source of RNase contamination, simply wearing gloves may not provide a suitable barrier. This is because either the gloves have become contaminated by human contact or the cleanliness of the glove is not sufficient to ensure that they are RNase-free. Accordingly here are some tips for gloving in an RNase-free environment: 1) As […]
