Ansell Healthcare has received CE mark approval for its Gammex Powder-Free gloves with Antimicrobial Technology (AMT).

During a glove breach, Gammex Powder-Free glove with AMT provides protection against pathogens and drug-resistant bacteria.

The Gammex gloves are made of natural rubber latex and has an active antimicrobial layer containing chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG).

In clinical and laboratory tests, Gammex Powder-Free with AMT showed that it killed at least 99% of invading HIV and HCV (hepatitis C) surrogate pathogens.

It also showed that the gloves kill over 99.7% of eight common infectious bacteria (gram-positive, gram-negative and drug-resistant bacteria) and kill over 99.99% of staphylococcus aureus.

Ansell said Gammex Powder-Free Gloves with AMT Antimicrobial Technology are not proven to protect against blood-borne infections where the skin is broken, cut or punctured.
